Dragonfly Dude IHP

Okay, isn't this bug dude just darling?!!! This is another Our Craft Lounge set, Just Bugz, that DD said, 'Um, mom, isn't that just too cutsie for you?' and I *snorted* in her general direction. I have a garage full of puppies and there is nothing that can be too cute after that!!!

First, I want to draw your attention to that fabulous pierced and embossed border - OH GOSH!!!!! Kate has pierceabilities in at i {heart} papers and these things are over the moon fabulous! They come with an acetate template that you can fiddle with placement of the template to make sure your work is super anal perfect. That is a happy place!

Now, get a load of that *uber* sparkly ribbon - glimmer orange. It's so easy to work with - it isn't stiff or pokey (pokey - technical term ;) ). The colour match is amazing with this My Mind's Eye Grow (Bloom and Grow) designer paper.


I decided to try paper tole with this cutie bug. I think I should have added an extra layer on the upper part of the wings, but hind sight is everything, eh? Totally adorable little guy there.
