Sweet Little Bug

My card today is for another challenge in the Hope You Can Cling To event on Splitcoast. This time I chose HYCCT1201B, to create a card for a child.

I thought Pure Innocence Lady Bug was a perfect stamp set to use for a child's card. Check out the embossed Kraft's a new-to-me embossing folder, Geometric!!! The base layer is Steel Grey on a Sweet Tooth card base.

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her skin and hair with copic markers. I paper pieced her outfit then fussy cut around her. For lots of sparkle I added a coating of black Spica glitter pen to the polka dots and some Star Dust Stickles to her wings. I used the Circle 1 STAX and Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the gingham circle and the white layer before stitching them together. The patterned paper is from the Pebbles Walnut Grove paper pad and the layout is Mojo262.

I used the Pretty Posies Die-namics to cut out the Blu Raspberry felt flower and topped it with a Sweet Tooth button tied with Hemp Cord. I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out all the flag elements on the front and the inside of the card.

On the inside I added another sentiments from the set. Hopefully this will bring a smile to the face of the child who receives this card.

You still have a couple of days to play along with this fun and very worthy event. Go check it out!

Here are the supplies I used:
