Catch The Bug – Freebie Friday

I have more great news to share with you, I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Bugaboo Stamps challenge blog for the month of June and July.  I can’t tell you how thrilled and excited I am!  Not only do I get to work with some amazing digital images, but also with the very talented design team.  It’s going to be an exciting two months!

                    Girl Flamingo

This weeks Friday freebie is “Flamingo Girl”, you can get the freebie HERE.  Check out Catch The Bug challenge blog for more beautiful cards made by the design team, you won’t be disappointed!

I paper pieced and colored the image.  The skirt, top, hat and glasses were paper pieced, then I added some shading with copics.  I used the Sakura Glaze pens on the rim of the glasses, and the flower.  The designer paper is from the Eva paper pad by Basic Grey.  The embossing folder is from Sizzix.  The corners were cut with a Cuttlebug die.  Then I used some Prima mini roses, and added a bit of a bow.  The sentiment is another freebie from Create With TLC.
