Bad Dogs and Bugz

I have two cards for you today using my new stamps from Our Craft Lounge.

The layout on the first card is the Sketch Saturday Challenge from February 14th. The OCL Just Bugz stamps, MME Free Bird DP, May Arts sheer brown ribbon, and May Arts champagne ric rac ribbon are all available at Stamper's Dream!



The main circle image and the Kiwi mat circle behind it are each up on Dimensionals....so is the punched sentiment and circle behind that. I added Candle Light Shimmerz paint to the wings of the bugs. I added some more DP and bugs to the inside of the card with more Shimmerz to the bugs' shells. Thank you, Silke, for the gems!!

The layout on the next card is Taylor's TECC56 Sketch....I just had to move the vertical panel and oval over a little so I could fit the sentiment in the corner like that. The OCL Pat the Bad Dog stamps, MME Penny Lane Free Bird DP, and May Arts teal sheer ribbon are all from Stamper's Dream.



The main image and the Chocolate oval behind it are each up on Dimensionals. Here's a close-up of the dimension and you can see that I stamped a little on the inside of the card along the bottom.

Those bugs are too cute!! I love that green DP!! And Pat is adorable as ever. My dogs never ate my shoes, but they did once play tug of war with a bean bag chair!! It looked like it had snowed in the living room when they were done. Pat kinda reminds me of them! :) hugs...
