Welcome to my blog and thanks soso much for spending a little while peeping into my world

What happens when a bug visits an outlaw?

No, it's not a joke, and I don't think there is a clever answer to this question!

But the BUG-aboo Stamps image in my card below was made for the Tuesday Color Challenge at The Outlawz.

I coloured the Bugaboo Stamps image (called Poppi Penguin - Lemonaide) using alcohol markers and cut the image with a circle die that I popped through the Cuttlebug again so that it embossed some extra scallops. 

 The DP is green and yellow checks and the sentiment is my own words, computer generated and printed on yellow cardstock.  I add yellow and green ribbon and the embellishments called for in the challenge need to be fruit related.  Around the scalloped border of the die I added teeny tiny nail art deco - slices of orange and lemon, and added a slice of lemon to Poppi's glass.

In addition to adding this card to The Outlawz Color Challenge, I would also like to enter it into the following challenges:
