Go Flourish

Wednesday, August 9, 2017
It's time for a new Little Red Wagon challenge and I'm the hostess this week. My son and I have been enjoying time outdoors (when it hasn't been raining) and trying to identify the various bugs that we find - so I decided that "Bugs and Slugs" would be this week's Little Red Wagon challenge!

I used the pretty "Butterfly Jar" stamp set from Flora and Fauna for my card, heat embossing the butterflies with sparkly embossing powder on both the card base and the distressed panel. The card is 5"x5" instead of my usual A2 size.

My card is quite a bit different from my original idea - cute little ladybirds and bees! I'm happy with the way things turned out though, and have a special person in mind for this card.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "Bugs and Slugs" creations. I can't wait to see what you make!

Products used:

The little banner for the sentiment is cut from a die from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). The card base is made with Stampin' Up's Naturals White cardstock.
