Don't Bug Me!

This card is another challenge card. It's also a birthday card for my nephew, who is turning 6. Last year I made him a pirate card that he LOVED. I was trying to figure out which stamp set that I have would be good for a 6 year old.

I tried to put myself in the mind of a 6 year old boy... what do they like (besides pirates because I have to do a new card)? They like bugs, right?

I used the sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge (on the sweetest thing blog) to come up with this card. The stamps are from the Love Bug set, and I colored the bugs in using my stampin' up markers in yellows, greens, and blues. I started with a base of Pacific Point, I layered a designer paper on top (that I don't know the name of) a layer of Garden Green that was embossed with leaves, and then another layer of Pacific Point with the bugs on top of that. I used my 1 3/8" square punch, and I popped up the middle bug. Then I used the sentiment from Happy Moments, punched it out with the word window and then used the modern label punch to punch a layer of Pacific Point.

I hope he likes it! Thanks for looking...
