Birthday Celebration at Catch the Bug

     This morning I discovered that Catch the Bug is celebrating its birthday all week long, with a different challenge and theme each day, and despite being somewhat feverish and achy, I want to play along.  So here's my card for their first theme which is "Bold and Bright."  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is a new one for me.

I based this on the sketch at Sketch Saturday,
turned on its side.

     I colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, die cut the image with a die from Spellbinders, inked the edges and mounted it onto distressed dp from Paper House.  I added tiny pearls to the corners of the image, and single pearls to the butterfly, the ladybug on her hat, and one of the flowers.

     The bow was hand tied using my new, scrunched ribbon from DL.Art.  They have the most gorgeous ribbons!  Even though the "white" space is actually dp space, it's still a pretty CAS card, easily mailed.
