FCCB Challenge #168 Cute As A Bug

I am so excited for this week! I finally hit 100 followers last week and I always told myself if ever I get 100 followers, I would post a video. So, here is my first video for Mollie's Motif!
This video shows the card I made for the FCCB Challenge #168 Cute As A Bug.  There are so many carts out there with cute, cute bugs and insects, the hardest part about this challenge will be which one to use!  That's what I discovered anyway.  But I ended up using the cute snail on the Live Simply cartridge.  I also used a scallop/flower cut from the same cart to put behind the snail shell.  I used two paper packs from DCWV - Hippie Chic and Shimmer Mat Stack, both of which I got from JoAnn's on clearance for $5.  I used foam tape to pop up my little snail and sentiment and I just freehanded the cutting around my sentiment tag.

The inside of my card is a simple mat from the Hippie Chic stack and orange/peach cardstock from Recollections (the same as the base mat on the front of my card and sentiment tag).  The little flower is also from Live Simply.

I hope you are able to join us this week for our challenge over at FCCB! It was a fun challenge for me and know it will be for you!  Thanks for checking in!
