Day Four-New Release Day

Can you believe we are already on day four of the mini challenges at Catch The Bug?  If this is the first you've heard about them, you can find the details on the Catch The Bug blog.  If this isn't the first you've heard of it I hope you've been playing along with us and are in the running for some of those cool prizes!!!

Let's get to today's challenge.  Most everybody loves bows, right?!  They add a nice touch to cards and tags,  and pretty much any project so that's the challenge.  Your project must have a bow on it.

Since it's Tuesday, it's also New Release day at Bugaboo Stamps. They are  Bride & Groom, and they're all ready to tie the knot!  While most people would think of them as  wedding images only, the team had to think outside the box on this one and use them to create a birthday card.  While watching one of the commercials for The Bachelor I came up with an idea and ran with it, so get ready folks cause here comes the groom:

I printed the image on white card stock and colored it using copic markers and my white prismacolor pencil for highlighting.  The designer paper I used is Doodle Love from the paper studio.He looks so elegant in his tux, I had to include a lot of elegant details like the glitter background cut with my Fancy Tags nestabilies and the punched borders and glittered ribbon.  I created the sentiment using Print Shop and then punched it out using an oval nestabilities.  Just a little doodling and I was done.

Other challenges I've entered this card:

Scrap Creations Die Cuts
Make It Monday-Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays-Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations-Birthdays
Sweet Stampin Challenges-Glitter

In the words of Porky Pig, "that's all folks"!  

I'll be back tomorrow for the next challenge!  TTFN
