Cutest Little Bug

I just knew that I had to have the level one hostess set Love Bugs as soon as I saw it. I just love the baby bug in the carriage. My only wish would be that the stamps were a little bit bigger. Well when I saw the fun colors that Kristina picked for her color challenge, I knew that I had a starting place for this fun set. Here is her inspiration:

071409-colors #56The colors she picked from the picture are red, pumpkin, saffron, celery, ballet blue and white. It was a lot of colors to work into a card and almost intimidating. Here is my card:cutebug

I took the time to paper piece the “capitiller” (as my 2.5 year old would say), because I wasn't too happy with just coloring it with my markers. It was pretty easy until I got to the hearts on the first body segment below the head. It was so frustrating because as soon as I cut one out I would loose it there are now 7 various itty bitty hearts somewhere in the room. After all of the trouble with the hearts I decided to just color the boots. Here is a close up of the details.cutebug detailsStamps: Love Bugs
