Fly Away With Me

OK, so as cute as this little bug is, I officially hate this card. LOL
Stacey was crafting with me the day I made this and she saw my mood plummet with every new strip of purple paper.
There was nothing I could do for this project, everything I grabbed made it worse, so i had to just let bad enough alone. Stacey reminded me of my last pink/purple card that came very close to being binned by me. Seems I just don't "do" that color combo well. lol
Oh well. It is what it is...
I'm rewarding myself with my second mallow cup right now, just for having to look at it.  Lucky for me I have one or two stashed away....lol It's not as easy as it seems typing with one hand while my left holds the dripping yummy and mans the shift button.

Ok, so the cute little fly digi is by Whimsy And Stars
Now just what color is a housefly? Black? Blue? Green?
I went with blue cos, well, what the heck?  She's a bluebottle!
The ribbons are from Sew Sweet. 
Image is colored with prismacolors on Kraft cardstock with a bit of glitter glue for the wings.
The sentiment I typed in word and printed it directly underneath the image.


That's it for today!

Well, I think it's absolutely adorable (except that it's a fly - lol). But I love the paper and ribbon colors you've had to endure. Hugs, dj

This is unbelievably cute!!! Usually I hate 99% of all insects, but this one is an exception! So cute! And I like the colors - pink and light blue are my favourites!!

Well I think your card is gorgeous - I love the stamping and colouring on the kraft cardstock.
I know how you feel when a card doesn't turn out the way you want it to - I've recently had that too, but I think my nephew liked his card LOL!
Love, Andrea xx

This is another purple pajamas! It will win lots and lots! It is cute! The blue makes it stand out more and breaks up the pink and purple! You can even make a fly look cute!!
