I love this little girl buggie. She is definitely one of my most used IA stamps behind the boy-themed ones. She has been perfect for the girl classmate birthday cards I need for the boys.
I loved the colors for the CC this week. But I definitely had a much harder time with the layout. Going into it, I thought that I was going to be able to use this large flower that I had bought a while back from OTC, but when it came time to lay out the card, it was waaayyy too big and really made the card un-balanced. It took me a long time to figure something out. In the end, I basically "made" up a flower using a punch out of the same stamp I used for the BG of the horizontal panel but just on Cool Caribbean paper and then used the button for the center of the flower. I layered the whole "flower" on an Old Olive circle to kinda ground it make it and feel like the bud. I also bent her wings up to make it have more dimension. I think it kinda worked out, right?...
