Yellow Anniversary Bugs

Good afternoon everyone!

I have a very bright, summery Anniversary card to share with you... it's for my
wonderful In-laws! 
This adorable image is from Wee Stamps... it's stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and I added a bit of shading with Prisma pencils. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the circle sentiment is from Jaded Blossom. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket, I embossed the bg with the CB Mesh folder and distressed with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. To finish it up I added sequins and paper flowers covered with Stardust Stickles.

After coloring this image I wasn't sure if I liked the yellow bugs, I almost tossed it in the trash... Oh, I'm so glad I didn't because I really like the way this card turned out! :)

That's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by!
