Hi! Welcome to another month of fabulous releases from KKS!!  I love this stamp set!  It can be used for so many projects!  I came across a tri fold card tutorial and thought it would be perfect for this stamp.  It was easy to do and I wanted to make it look like the bugs were finally escaping from the jar!
The front of the card is a shaker card filled with micro beads.  I used designer paper for the lid. The paper is from the Doodlebug - Spring Things paper pad.  It was perfect for the bottle.  Once you open the card you see all the bugs flying away towards freedom!

This is a picture of the card laying flat.  I added a bit of ribbon behind the sentiment to help pull the card open and up.  Cute eh!!  I colored the bugs with Copics and cut some of them out.  Some were stamped right on the card stock and then coloured.  The stitched rectangle, grass and clouds are both dies from YNS. I made the flowers using an MS mini flower punch and a die for the stem and leaves from Impression Obsession.  Then I added a little ribbon and some gum drops to finish it off!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
