A Bug's Life Challenge at Catch the Bug

Hi, everyone! Happy Saturday!
I love Saturday blogging - there are always so many great challenges and creations in blogland on the weekends, and today is no exception; in fact, today is a new challenge day at Catch the Bug Blog, featuring all kinds of sweet Bugaboo Stamps images! Make sure you hop on by to check out all the wonderful DT eye-candy, and we hope you join us for the fun!
This week's theme is

A Bug's Life

I used one of my favorite, and often used, images from Bugaboo Stamps: it is called

I used three of the images from the set to create this card. My little inchies are popped up on pop-dots, and I punched them with an EK Success punch. The main bee image is matted on a piece that is punched with a Martha Stewart border punch that I recently picked up on sale. My floral arrangement is made up of a bunch of flowers I raided from my stash. I have a little drawer of punched and paper-pieced items that I made at one point or another, and it is filling up. I decided it was time to grab what I can out of it, and try to use it! The flowers are both twirled flowers from my 3D Curled Flowers.  The leaf below it is actually a holly leaf, but I figured since I had it punched, and it's a long way to Christmas, I may as well use it since it fit right. :)

Now it's your turn to pick a favorite image, or try something new from Bugaboo Stamps, whip up your project and head on over to enter it into the Mr. Linky!
