Sweet Julie

Look at this awesome RAK I got from my sweet, sweet friend Julie at Stampin' With Julie! Is that penguin card not the cutest? As if that wasn't enough, she sent me that CUTE CUTE stamp set! It's by Autumn Leaves and is called Mini Bugs. I just LOVE it. . .and look at all of those ladybugs! :) I was so excited when I opened this package. What a great surprise! Thank you so much Julie! You are the best! I loved this stamp set so much that I HAD to use it yesterday for the Color Challenge on SCS, Mustard Olives. . .to use More Mustard, Old Olive and Bashful Blue. I decided to pull out an old Classy Brass template that I thought would go well with the little ladybugs. I can't even remember the name of this template, and there's no name on the package. The three ladybugs are colored with a More Mustard marker, and the last ladybug is stamped twice--once in black, once in Old Olive and then I cut out the wings and adhered them over the black stamped image. The last touch was the olive velvet ribbon. I didn't want it to cover the sentiment, so I had to use the horizontal slot punch so the ribbon would only go over so far. I think it worked. Well, thanks for stopping by today! I am feverishly working on finishing Savannah's "favors" to take to preschool tomorrow for her birthday. Hopefully I'll be able to share them with you tomorrow! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Mini Bugs (Autumn Leaves), Stem Sayings; Ink- Palette in Noir, Old Olive; Paper- DCWV mustard, olive, blue, Whisper White; Accessories- olive velvet ribbon, horizontal slot punch, More Mustard marker, Classy Brass template.
