Especially for you

Hi, Janja, here again. 
For today's card I used even older die, and gave Mr. Love Bug a new look.


- CottageCutz dies: Mr. Love BugJamboree Bear, Build-A-Bow, Filigree Bow
- white card base: 4.25 x 5.5" (10,8 x 13,97 cm), folded 
- patterned paper: 3.74 x 4.96" (9,5 x 12,6 cm)
- gray cardstock: 3.85 x 5.07" (9,8 x 12,9 cm)
- white and colored cardstock
- vellum paper
- Distress ink pads: festive berries, aged mahogany, hickory smoke, black soot
- white and black pen
- Wink of Stella - clear glitter brush marker
- double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive pads, glue

Cut out all the pieces for Mr. Love bug and a guitar.
My pieces were cut out from colored cardstocks, and additionally colored with different ink pads. 
For wings I used vellum paper. I decorated them with a glitter.

Cut a white card base, and one rectangle from a gray cardstock and the other from a patterned paper. 
Combine both rectangles to match on two sides. 
Stamp the sentiment.
Attach the red tape with a bow in the upper right corner as shown. 
Unfortunately, the die Build-A-Bow that I used is no longer available, which I noticed when the card was finished. So I added a link to another one.

Finish the card. 

Have a nice day.
