Goin' Buggy

Do any of you have trouble with boy cards? I just seem to have limited sets for making cards for boys. (Could it be because I'm always buying florals???? hmmm). And I always seem to need them too. Our middle son had a birthday party last weekend and I needed yet another boy card.

I needed quick, I needed boyish....



So I grabbed this fun alphabet set, and Bugs & Kisses, and put it together based on this piece of patterned paper (Muirfield - so bummed it retired).

Some of the buggies are popped up and the ribbon isn't at all frilly. Cute and simple. Works for any name that's not too long!
Recipe: Stamps: Big Deal Alphabet, Bugs and Kisses; Ink: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss; Paper: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Muirfield DSP; Accessories: Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon, Silver Brads, Dimensionals
