Double D - Don't Bug Me!

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are playing with BUGS!! Here is the wonderful Mood Board provided for our inspiration:

And here's my card:
I have had this Stampin' Up Beetles and Bugs stamp set for awhile. Don't ask my why I wanted it, I just like it. It's a multi-step set so you can do several colors. I stamped the images on some vintage-look patterned paper, cut them out with my circle punches and then applied several layers of Baked Textures Vintage Bees Wax embossing powder. I love the way they turned out. The background is Distress Oxides smooshed, and then I applied some gold Ultra High Texture embossing powder. I also used some Baked Textures Ancient Amber embossing powder for the circles in the lower left corner.

Here are the Ingredients:
SU Island Indigo Card Stock
Nina Neutrals Card Stock
Distress Oxides and GKD Inks
SU Beetles and Bugs Stamp Set
SU Playful Backgrounds Stamp Set
DCWV Preserved Papers Patterned Paper
WOW Ultra High Metalic Gold Embossing Powder
Baked Textures Ancient Amber Embossing Powder
Baked Textures Vintage Bees Wax Embossing Powder
Stash Ribbon

I would love it if you would stop on over to the Double D Blog to see what the other designers have created. And if you play along you could win this assortment of butterfly, ladybug and insect stickers for card making. How FUN!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week. Don't forget to swing by Double D and check us out.  Oh, and I so appreciate your lovely comments!!!
