Snug as Bugs
I made this cute little card for my sister, Mariah. She just moved into her first, very own apartment (she's 18) and I wanted to make her a little "congratulations on your new home" type card. I thought this image from Crafty Secrets was perfect for this card with it's cute little, "Snug as Bugs" sign on the little bug home. I got the layout from the Mojo Monday challenge blog:
I used the fun recipe from Simon Says Challenge Blog, "3 embellishments, 2 papers, and 1 image". Then, I decided to look through my Basic Grey paper to see what looked most like the picture Basic Grey Challenges posted for inspiration:
Can you see any resemblance? It may have turned out looking like the picture a bit more if I had color ink in my printer to print it out with. My craft area isn't close to my computer, so I had to just go by memory. :)
Next, I wanted to make sure to include some pearls (embellishments) and swirls (pattern on the Basic Grey paper) to qualify for the Cupcake Craft Challenges challenge of the week, "Pearls & Swirls"! It was fun participating in all of these challenges today! Thanks for looking!
