Bug A Boo Stamps Picnic Ants

Happy Saturday!  There's a new challenge at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug starting today, it's an Anything Goes challenge!

I've had this cute little picnic ant for awhile now, it was so much fun to color and make a card with.  I found a sentiment for the inside that says, "Love You To The Core".  I forgot to take a picture of that part of my card though...

The image is colored with Copic markers R39, R37, R34, T5, T3, T1, G28, G24, G20, E44, E43, E41, E40 and cut out with a Spellbinders square die.  My layout is Splitcoast Stampers sketch #300.  I noticed the scrap of red gingham in the pile by my paper trimmer and thought it would be perfect for a picnic ant and there was just enough to do what I needed.  The other papers are Basic Black by Via Vellum, Neenah Solar White and Kraft.  To finish my card I used four black mini half pearls because they reminded me of the apple seeds.

I hope you'll stop by the Catch The Bug challenge blog and play along in our Anything Goes challenge this week!

Boy, you sure have been busy creating in the past couple of days, Jan. Some very creative cards done in your clean, fresh style. That was a very nice note from a troop Chaplain about the OWH cards that they have been receiving. Sure is nice to know that they are so appreciated.
