Operation Write Home – Bugs Life & Giveaway

OWH blog post

Hello my scrappy friends….I am so excited to be a part of the Operation Write Home blog today. Today's Mid Week Throw-down is "It's a Bugs Life"…in other words, use some kind of bug/insect on your card.

Hope you love the Burgundy color on this card...it is all done with OPI Bogota Blackberry nail polish. (who knew...but it is actually great to "paint" with and ends up with a nice glossy finish when dry).


 Scor-Tape was applied to back of ribbon and pinched together to ruffle. (Ribbon was from a box of chocolate my sister and I shared in Vail). Sentiment from Stampendous was heat embossed with Rose Quartz embossing powder. Pearl hat pin and burgundy seed pearls were added for the antenna.

Hoping you have a buggie/crafty day and
Thanks for stamping by….
