It's Bellarific Friday!

Happy Friday! That means today is Bellarific Friday and this week our theme is "Lovey Dovey". For my card I used the little "Love Bug" Huggabugg; I think she's pretty lovey!
Love Bug is stamped, colored, sprayed with Glimmer Mist, and last the glitter was added to her wings. All that shimmery goodness was a bit hard to photograph, so I added a close up. In real life, the image is crisp and so shimmery!
I paper pieced the the middle panel; it's a really fun technique and so great for using up those leftover bits of DP (or not, since I don't always use leftovers!). I just cut a strip of copy paper to size, glued on the DP with a glue stick, and trimmed. Super easy! (Does anybody else love glue sticks? My favorite brand is Ross, and now I can't find them.... I really like them because you have a bit of "wiggle room" before they dry. I can never seem to get things straight my first try.... If you know of a good one, please let me know. Thanks!)
With all the shimmer, I kept the rest of the embellishing simple and added some chocolate Bella Dots to finish the card.

Very cute card! Love all the glitter and shimmer (after seeing the glimmermist on another card from you I just had to buy it, haven't used it yet, but it looks so great. That stamp is so cute and I love the layout of your card.
