Loving them bugs!

Good evening everyone!

Hope you are keeping well on this lovely Tuesday!

Well, at the weekend I was taking one of my daughters birthday pressies out of its box and it had some plastic little strap thingies keeping the toy in place - now, the way it was being held in place was quite good and I thought that it would be a good way to attach accetate to a card for a pop up! Here is what I came up with:

Recipe: DCWV Spring stickers, white card from stash, DCWV Spring papers, accetate.

Wotcha think? I am quite pleased with how it came out but boy, can that accetate be sharp...!!

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:

Pile it On #15 - All about Spring
Pennys Challenge - Anything Goes
YNS Challenge #14 - Stitching (mine is faux!)
Paperplay #15 - Stickers
One Stop Craft Challenge #76 - Thigns with Wings
Allsorts Challenge #48 - Stitching (mine is faux)

Pin It Now!
