Heard You Caught a Bug......{Challenge Card}

Happy Sunday everyone!!
I wanted to pop in with a card I made...that is not for a DT but one that I wanted to make to enter a few challenges!
I used this week's Stella Says Sketch
and came up with this..... I hope you like it!
So for my card I used the adorable Bugaboo Stamps image~ Bug Jar~Ladybug and colored her with my copic markers. I added a layer of glossy accents to the jar as well as some x-mas red stickles to the bow on the jar. Once all that was dry, I ran the image through my sewing machine :)
The designer paper is actually Christmas paper from MME~Christmas (I think this is one of my favorite paper packs....LOVE the colors!!)
I made a border with my sewing machine again for this and then tied some 
3GJ~ Dress White crinkle ribbon which is one of the newest releases and part of the Navy Bundle.
Finally I used the new release stamp set~ Punny Animals from Joy's Life
Well there you have it! 
That is all I have for now.....
Next up, working on my PKS challenge entry....but I wont be posting that until Wed
Make sure to stop by tomorrow for a brand new
as well as on Tuesday for my
TAWS project
