Picnic Bug Cupcakes by Manchester Tarts 

This week is a theme:  

Make a paper craft project including some kind of bug!

Stop by the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog and check out all my fellow Design Sweeties projects for more inspiration and check out mine below:

STAMPS: Strawberry Ants Digital Images & Sentiment(Doodle Pantry).
PAPER: Red, yellowgold and white cardstock; DP - Summer Fresh (Simple Stories).
INK: Copics on digital image.
EXTRAS: Stitched oval mats (Lil Inker Designs); Stitched rectangle mat (Lil Inker Designs); Label and banner die (Lil Inker Designs); Small bow die (Impression Obsessions); Flower dies (Paper Sweeties); white pearl gem.

My card kind of fell together pretty quickly and well.  I had the card base in my stash, already with the stitched mat.  I decided to cut a round stitched mat in the center of the front of the base and of the designer paper to bump up around my image cut on the round stitched die.  The little flower dies from Paper Sweeties were perfect for duplicating the white flowers on the strawberry plants.

I gave this card to my Hubs as a small token of my appreciation, gratitude and love for him for stepping up and taking such good care of me and all of our responsibilities all alone for the past month while I was so horribly sick.  He's definitely a keeper (despite being a Lion's fan, but hey, we all have our faults)!  LOL

 Sweet Cupcake Blessings to All!
