Glow Bugs

                                  Happy Thursday High Hopes fans! 

We have had an extremely mild, snowless winter this year compared to "normal" which puts me in the mood for spring and summer and all things warm and bright! 

Today I am using Jenny's Glow Bugs  from High Hopes Stamps. She is just too cute and has put alot of hard work into catching these bugs!


I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers and using a stitched oval die to cut it out. I chose some bright fun spring paper from Little Yellow Bicycle, and you can't see it in the photo but the flower,bow and bug wings have some clear Wink of Stella added to them. The oval is edged with antique linen distress ink, some brads, ribbon and a dragon fly charm finish off my card. I also added a flower border for some added texture. A sentiment will be included on the inside when I have an event I need the card for.
