Backgrounds are yellow, accents are blue....

Just add a touch of apricot and I made you....

Wade E. Bug is sure handsome in blue, yellow and peach isn't he? ;) It's amazing to me how many colors you can make a ladybug (er manbug?) and he still looks quite dashing. I used Barely Banana for the background and Soft Sky for the strip. I wanted to add texture to the card rather than just stamping a background so I remembered that I had some fun Fiskars texture plates and sure enough...Polka Dots!!!! I ran it through my cuttlebug and then added some fun paper piercing to the top and bottom borders. It's been a while since I've distressed my paper so I decided to rough up the edges around Wade and the banana matting as well. He still needed a little pizazz so I scrambled around in my marker drawer and found my Sakura glitter pens and sure enough....light orange!


Only a few more days til CHA and meeting the Prettie Girls in person!!! Yup, this will be the very first time we "meet" and I'm sure there will be plenty of photos posted throughout the weekend so you can peek in on our many adventures! Stay tuned....
