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.
