Rainbow Bugs

I seem to work better when I use a recipe! The "recipes" I use are the different blog challenges! Today I used the sketch challenge from Creating Life's Pieces, the colors of the rainbow challenge from The Crafty Pad, and Crazy 4 Challenges challenge to use 1 ribbon, 2 buttons or brads, and 3 different punches.

I was lucky to find all of my cardstock from my scrap box, so I am being frugal! I folded the yellow, and punched the red using the Martha Stewart Stars border punch. I adhered the red and the orange and the green in that order. I then used the Nestabilities Labels 8 die to punch out the image panel and the Stampin' Up oval punch to punch out the sentiment. I stamped both the Dragonfly and the Thankzzz from the Stampin' Up set Cute as a Bug with Staz-On ink onto the white panels. I colored the dragonfly with some pens and used the direct to paper technique with Only Orange ink to both white punches, and then adhered them with pop dots. Last but not least, I added the ribbon to the bottom with 2 orange flower brads from my stash!

I hope you all enjoy today's card, and don't forget to check out these wonderful challenge sites and come up with your own "recipe!"
