Catch The Bug Friday Mini Challenge – Anything Goes

Well, it’s last mini challenge with Bugaboo Stamps and the theme is Anything Goes, and I used “Stella and Gus” it’s the “One Person To Annoy” digital stamp.  They are just so hilarious, they make me chuckle every time I look at them!! 
I cut the shape of the card with the Cricut Wildcard cartridge, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink.  I used vellum and the Spellbinders beaded round die, and then dry embossed the circles, and then colored them with a white pencil crayon.  I wanted the white to really show threw.  Then I cut another beaded circle in blue and taped it to the back of the vellum one.  The pink lacy circle was cut with a Martha Stewart corner punch.  The mini roses are made by Prima.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC, and I love it with this image.  Then for a little bling, I added some pink pearls around the card.
