Love Bug

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a card I made using the SUPER FUN layout at the most recent Card Patterns Sketch Challenge AND the GORGEOUS color combo at Jay Gee's Nook!

Here's my creation:

This cute little baby card features an ADORABLE image and sentiment from "Giddy Bugs" by Paper Smooches! I was SO EXCITED to find this stamp set in my prize box from the World Card Making Day Contest!!! And that beautiful border??? That's the Abstract Flower Edger Punch (EK Success)---also part of the same prize box!!! AND...the patterned papers I used to create the background are from the Farmhouse Collection by October Afternoon, which I was LUCKY enough to win from their blog!!! WOOHOO!!!!! A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all of these AMAZING companies for their incredible generosity!!! I am having SO MUCH FUN crafting with your products!!

I hope you're having a GREAT week, blog friends!
