A Round Hello

Meljen's Designs challenge is to create a round or square card.  No rectangles are allowed.  I knew I wanted to try a round card.  I rarely make shaped cards so I wanted to challenge myself.  I cut the card from my Cricut Wild Card cartridge. The main image is Sunflower Buggies that is available here at Whimsy Stamps.  I also used the image Little Bug Line that is also available here at Whimsy Stamps.  The last image is Stitched Hello which is a freebie that is available here on the blog website.  I added a little bit of DeNami Design Sparklets glitter to the bees' wings using a Quickie Glue Pen.  This glitter is ultrafine and has so much sparkle to it!

So why all the buggies you may ask?  Well, Enfys at Going Buggy is having a blog party to celebrate having over 2,000 followers, 1,800 people receiving emails, and a whopping 500,000 hits on her blog.  She has a challenge to create a card for any occasion, but it must have a bug on it.  So I made sure to have plenty on this card!  There are great prizes to be won this week so go visit and get your party on!  My post is to say what country I am from.  That would be USA.

Stamp Something is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week and their challenge is anything goes.  I am also entering this card in their challenge.
