Country View Crafts Challenges - It's A Bug's Life

Welcome to June.  We are almost half way through the year already!

This month Jane has chosen 'It's a Bug's Life' as the theme over at Country View Crafts Challenges.  Now this theme threw me at first as I don't often use 'bugs' in my craft, however, the ideas started to flow.

Here is my first project for the month

I started my project using a very simple stencilled background that I used spray inks through.  

The flowers and ladybirds were various ones from the JOFY collection at PaperArtsy.  These were stamped and coloured then cut out.

I thought the ladybirds were very cute!

A very simple, but colourful card.  Perfect for the start of the warmer months - let's hope we have a good summer!

Thank you for joining me today.  Make sure you pop over to the Country View Crafts Challenge blog where you can see the inspiration from the other design team members.  And don't forget to join the challenge - you may be the lucky winner of a gift voucher that can be spent in the online shop!

Thanks for looking... Happy crafting!
