The Darling BUGS Of May

This week's theme at the Daring Cardmakers is 'The Darling BUGS Of May'.  Straight away I knew I wanted to get my old Tilda with ladybug out, I think this was the 1st Magnolia stamp I bought.  
Whilst I was making it I decided to combine in a few more challenges as well.

There's an embossed background that I realised afterwards is for a challenge that hasn't started yet, but that's OK as I have already seen another idea that I want to try for that one.

The papers with the butterflies on are from Prima.  I've added some additional punched butterflies decorated with pearls and along with Tilda's bug that's my 2 Bs for Moving Along With The Times #98 and my favorite things for the Magnolia Down Under challenge #96.
Finally got my hands on some bakers twine that seems to be one of the current card making trends.  I've finished mine off with some little blue beads.
Tilda is coloured with Copics in shades of yellow for Copic Creations #50.

We had a busy weekend, I don't know where the time flies to.  Back to Pre-School for the Branston Pickle today, he seems to be settling in well.  My afternoon without him flies past and I have to be very focused not to just surf the net when I should be getting other jobs done!
