Caught a Bug?

It's time for another challenge at the Hambo Hoedown.  And this week I was chosen to be a Guest Designer.  I have been playing along for quite some time with the Hambo Hoedown challenges.  First I would like to thank Lyn at My Purple House for introducing me to the Hambo Hoedown.  When they asked me to be a Guest Designer, I was thrilled.
This week's challenge is a sketch.  Sometimes when given a sketch, it takes a while to come up with an idea.  This was not the case this time.  Here is the sketch.

It was a change to make a card that wasn't the usual A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") size.  When I scaled the sketch, the card ended up being 4 1/4" x 7 3/8".  And here is my card.


Stuff I Used:
Image-Flytrap digital image by Hambo Stamps
Colored with Prismacolor Art Markers (yes I have other markers besides Copics.  hahaha)
Stem/leaves-PM25 (chartreuse), PM27 (Apple Green)
Flower-PM12 (Lt Flesh), PM10 (Blush), PM113 (Cold Grey 60%)
DP-DCWV Stack 8
Card Base-Staples cardstock Salmon
Cardstock-Recollections Purple Passion pack

Tape-Darice Sparkle tape Grey, Hot Pink & Darice Washi tape Green stripe
Diecuts-Spellbinders Ovals Small, Scalloped Ovals Small
Corner rounder-Fiskars 1/4" Squeeze corner rounder

Twine-Darice Baker's Twine 

Faux stitching-Pentel white gel pen
Dots on scallops-Gelly Roll metallic pink
Sentiment (front)-Hambo Stamps
(inside)-Computer generated

I popped up the image panel on homemade pink foam squares.  I added a smaller flytrap image along with more DP and tape to the inside.

It was a great thrill to chosen as a Guest Designer.  I always enjoy seeing what images and challenges they have for everyone.  Join in and you'll get hooked.

Thanx for looking and please comment.

Awwwwe I am so glad I found you - I can't wait to see your entries every week - they are always amazing! I love that you always go the extra step and finish the inside of the card - I am lazy when it comes to that! Eventually your influence may rub off - just keep trying :) So glad you joined the DT for this weeks challenge - as nailed it! Love those bright, fun colors and sparkly tape!
:~) Lyn
