It's a bug party

Hello everybody.. i hope you all had a great Mothersday. We had all day long rain in Michigan and i was without Internet this weekend :-) hubby was working in the house and hit with the nailgun a wire :-) It was kind of different not to go online ... but i used the time to make some cards.

I made this card last week using Beate's sketch which i thought was prefect for this long image. I first embossed the buggies with black detail embossing powder and colored them in with Stampin up markers. The sky and sunlight was made with Pebbles shimmery chalks. I did not want to add too many embellishments - cause i think the paper is more for a boy. So i thought a small ribbon and some Robin's Nest is fine.
Stamp: Alota Rubberstamps "Jennifers 21st Birthday"
