Hi, everyone! Happy Saturday!

This card features the image Lady Bug Butterfly from Bugaboo Stamps. I saw this great idea for the card layout at Snippets, and decided to try it for this card. I love the idea for CAS cards; it adds such a great visual interest.

I started by coloring the image in PSE (surprised?! No....I know you're not! haha). I added the sentiment, also in PSE, and then printed it out on a 3-1/2 x 5 card. I used some of my old, neglected Paper Shapers scissors and cut across the bottom of my card. I added some black doodling with my Zig journaling pen, then layered the polka-dot dp beneath the two pieces, creating a negative from my cut. I trimmed the edges of the now-adhered pieces back down to a 3-1/2 x 5 size, then I did some additional layers before adding it all to my card base, which is an A2 size.

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!

By entering your project, you could win up to TEN Bugaboo images!
Head on over to Catch the Bug to play along!

Pick up this cute Bugaboo image, and others, over at the Bugaboo Stamps Store, and make sure you also jump over to the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog: it's where you can find out all the lastest "dish" on what challenges are happening and what other challenge sites that Bugaboo is sponsoring (more chances to win some free Bugaboo!). It's also where you can check out all the other fantastic DT projects, including the OBG (Oldie But Goodie) stuff, the ABC (Anything But a Card) items, and the Tuesday New so much more!

One more thing before I wrap this on the lookout for the upcoming Bugaboo Christmas in July Week Long Celebration! This is always a favorite, with lots of FREE images given away for participating in our challenges that week! I'll have more details on that as the date draws nearer.

Also, I am now assisting the DT Coordinator with some of the more routine things at Catch the Bug Blog to fill in some time for our wonderful Ms. Min, who is expecting Baby #1, and is happily preparing for the arrival! I'm helping out with some posting duties, and I'm also helping out by choosing a Bugaboo Stamps Fan of the Month! So......if you're a fan of Bugaboo Stamps (and who isn't, right?!), make sure you're posting your Bugaboo cards on your blog because I'm poking around Blog-land looking for YOU! :)

Happy Crafting!
