Be my love bug

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Happy weekend to you!

Today I have a sweet Valentine's Day card that I created for the current Lawnscaping Challenge.  This one was a toughie for me because the challenge is Clean and Simple.  I really have a hard time with this type of card because I just can't seem to leave it alone. After all, I do have all these embellishments that I need to use up...right?  Anyway, I'm trying to get outside my crafting comfort zone these days and here's what I came up with....

I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to create my mat, cutting the white mat from watercolor paper.  Again, trying to move out of my crafting comfort zone, I pulled out my watercolors and used 3 shades of pink on the bottom of my mat.

Next, I cut out a few hearts with the Stitched Party Banners Die Set and painted them in shades of pink.  I colored these sweet little bugs from the Bugs & Kisses Stamp Set with my Copic Markers, die cut them and added them to the hearts.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the bugs and tiny heart all received a bit of sparkle with a Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.

And, here is the inside of my card.
That pretty much wraps this one up!  Thanks so much for stopping by today - I'm off to link up my card over at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog...

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be seeing you soon...
