I look at CASology the cool challenge theme INSEKT. I remember my lovely friend Flo ever Exchange images with me, she sent me this lovely Bugs Images (many thanks Flo, now this Image is on my card ;)). I die cutting with circle DIE. Only colored the middle Bug. Then I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts.

  8. Hello Monika! You have been busy! :-) I love your little trio of bugs in your first card. Popping them into overlapping circles is a great way of highlighting those little creatures, and so effective with the 'white on white'. Your second card is a great, fun guy card! The stenciled background adds fabulous colour and texture to it! SO glad you could join us at CASology this week!
