Combining Challenges!!!

Happy Friday! When Friday rolls around, so does the weekly Blogger's Challenge. This week's challenge is to add stitching to our projects. I also decided to throw in Sweet Miss Daisy's "Daisy" Challenge from the High Hopes Stamps Blog.

It has been quite a week! Between relatives and friends of the family, my family has had to attend four funerals this week. Instead of making anymore sympathy cards, I couldn't wait to make a fun and happy card, so that's how this one came about. The image is from High Hopes Stamps and the sentiment is from A Muse. I used my Prismas to color up this sweet, gardening bug and I added some Star Dust Stickles for the sparkly wings and antennae. The card base is Stampin' Up's So Saffron along with a layer of So Saffron Designer paper and a panel of Buckaroo Blue. A few buttons in the bottom corner from Making Memories finish off this one.

For more inspiration using stitching, just check out what the other Ladies have come up with here, and you can see some more "daisies" over on the High Hopes Blog here. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a terrific weekend...Toodles! :D
