I had a lot of fun with this card, I used this adorable JJ image from Bugaboo Stamps from the JJ Hobbies line. I love the attitude this image has, the way she's standing and holding herself, she always makes me smile. I pulled out my Spellbinders Labels 13 because I wanted to add a bit of drama to the image, and I think it works well. Staying with the fall colors theme I used orange shades and some yellows to color in the image and then used those papers as well as some of the green to really make it all come together to be fall. I decided to finish off the card with some fun felt flowers that I cut out and used matching buttons to create the flower centers. I did have a lot of fun with this, getting into using colors that I haven't used in a while was nice.
I do hope you like my creation, enjoy the rest of the Design Teams work and be sure to play along! Be sure to go and check out all the fun at the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog! Have a fabulous weekend too!
This card also qualifies for the Stamp Something Challenge of Spots and Stripes!
