INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 37 - Adorable bugs

Happy Friday,
Christina and I welcome you to our weekly challenge. This week, the theme is Adorable Bugs. My favourite bug is the ladybug. There is a long story associated with my love for this cute bug, and it has to do with my youngest son. He is now a man, but I still can't resist buying anyting that has a ladybug!

Bon Vendredi,
Cette semaine ma bonne amie Christina et moi, avons comme thème "Bébite adorable",  mon mari n'approuverait certainement pas cette traduction, mais elle est appropriée! J,ai une longue histoire d'amour avec les coccinelles, directement associée à mon plus jeune fils. Encore aujourd'hui je résiste difficilement à tout objet ou image avec une coccinelle.

 I have chosen Explore Tilda for my card, who has decided to go for a ride in her car.  I used Tilda's car, unable to find a suitable image of a Volkswagen beetle! However, it does look a little bit like it! Tilda and the car are stamped with Versafine on Strathmore Bristol paper, and colored with crayons... The inspiration of this card came from a blogger friend, I admire very much,  Claudia, I invite you to visit her, if you have not already did; since the car is so big, I was unable to print it on a proper sized shape giving me enough room to play with Tilda. So, I decided the scenery would be the card, and I would add embellishments.The flower and the stickpin are handmade. I received those magnificient corners from my dear Chritina ( Thank you so much).

J'ai étampé Explore Tilda  ainsi que la voiture sur papier Bristol, en me servant de la technique du masque. Je me suis inspirée d'une amie bloggeuse que j'admire beaucoup Claudia, que je vous invìte à visiter, elle vous inspirera, ses cartes sont de petits bijoux. Étant donné que la voiture occupe beaucoup d'espace, j,ai pensé que la scène entière occuperait le haut de la carte, sans plus. Je décorerais le bas de l'image. Voilà!

My scene is stamped on Bristol and colored with crayons and Taltine;
J,ai étampé mon image sur Bristol, elle est coloriée avec du crayon et estompé avec de la Taltine.

The flower is hand made, and painted with Glossy accent; the pearls for the stickpins are from my stash; the tag is from Spellbinders;  the sentiment phrase is from a lovely set called Sentiments sheet 101, designed by Nicole Verkooden, as I needed something oval shape, I decided to print the sentiment usingWord on my printer. The border as well as the foliage are cut with my cricut expression.The very beautiful corners are a gift from Crissy. (thank you!)

J'ai fait moi-même la fleur que j'ai recouverte de Glossy accent; l'épingle à chapeau est faite avec des perles de mon inventaire; l'étiquette de spellbinders; pour le sentiment, je me suis inspirée d'un ensemble de Nicole Verkooden, sheet 101, puisque j'avais besoin d'une forme ovale, j'ai imprimé au moyen de l'imprimante. La bordure ainsique les feuillages sont coupées avec ma cricut expression. Les magnifiques coins sont un présent de Christina.

I would like to invite you to visit my very talented friends and teamates, Christina and Cathy Lynn; Rene is on vacation this week. Next week our theme will be a "recipe card".

Hey Sweet Pea! You are indeed the Queen of Design when it comes to scene with a story cards. No words necessary. A picture is worth a thousand words. This design dances!!
The Tilda you have used is one of my favorites and reminds me of one of my granddaughters. Those corner embellishment are fantastic and oddly enough look like elegant bugs. See their little eyes poking up over their red noses! The coloring is out of the world - to die for perfect. You do well with a lot of different mediums. This color is so rich - like a good cup of coffee rich. For me, this is one perfect card. The design, the subject matter, the rich colors - I love it!!
