Challenge 178 Add an Insect!


Happy Friday to everyone!  I hope you're enjoying the dreadful heat and humidity!  At least, that's what the weather here in Northern Virginia is.  That's ok...perfect reason to stay inside where there's AC and CRAFT!

So today's share is for this week's LNS Challenge.  We have a great challenge this week to welcome in Summer.  We all know that Summer means more insects-bees, ants, ladybugs, etc.  So in honor of Summer having begun on Wednesday, we will be celebrating insects!

Challenge 178
Add an insect
This week you must have an insect on your card, scrapbook page, project or any thing else you can think of to papercraft.

As has been very popular this week, I too used the butterfly as my insect.  I've always kept a good distance from anything that crawls, buzzes, or scurries, so...I went with the "girly" insect...

I CASEd this card from Stampin' Connection, but can't remember whose work it was, so if you can identify it, please, let me know so I can give credit where it's due!
