Sleeping in the beetle bug...With a hundred pounds of air in my heart....

Happy Friday, Sistahs! Today is a fun day...Emily at Stamping Bella has a new release and a great shipping special going on. Nothing better than new stamps and free shipping! You can check out the newly released stuff and the details on Em's blog HERE.

To celebrate, I decided to ink up my new LOVEbeetle Huggabugg. How cute is she???
If I do say so mahself...it's a pretty cute card. *wink* I combined this week's Sketch Challenge and Ways to Use It Challenge, which was to layer your embellishments. Super fun! The image was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, then colored with Copic Markers. After cutting and embossing with my Rectangle Nestabilities, I mounted the image onto my card base, which measures 5 1/4" square. The Pink Pirouette layer underneath was embossed with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, then sponged with Close to Cocoa and stitched to the Chocolate Chip base layer. I also added some of the striped paper from Basic Grey's Bittersweet collection.

On to the embellishments! All three Prima flowers were white to start with. I painted the largest flower with Hottie Pink Shimmerz, the medium one with Pixie Dust (my new fave), and the smallest with Pink Poinsettia. After they dried (I gave them a hefty coat), I added Diamond Ice Baubles to the centers of the 2 smaller flowers, and layered my sentiment and a button onto the large flower, tying it all together with white crochet thread.

THEN (yep, there's more!) I added some Pink crystals to the main image with my new Hot Fix tool. Love that thing!

Anywho, I hope you likey the card today! Stay tuned for a Sketch for You to Try tomorrow. Have a fabulous Friday night!
