FCCB 168 - Cute as a Bug

Happy Monday!  It's time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!  This week's challenge is Cute as a Bug - include any bug on your project.

I looked through all my stamp sets and couldn't find a bug-related sentiment that appealed to me when I was making this card.  So I decided to find a cute bug and go with a more generic sentiment instead.

I cut this cute dragonfly from the Paisley cartridge, using my Gypsy to hide the cuts on the face so I could use a Peachy Keen stamp instead.  It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I added glitter to the dragonfly's wings.

I popped the dragonfly up using pop dots and finished the card off with some twine and a button.  A pretty simple card that I am sure will come in handy as a thank you or just to send a friend a little note sometime.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card!  Be sure to link up your creations that include a bug and at least one Cricut cut over at Fantabulous Cricut by Sunday!  I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!!
