Alota Bugs Post

Hi everyone, a card today for Pile it on Challenge where this week three different kinds of embellishment must be used plus combining the card with at least one other challenge, Daring Cardmakers where the challenge is 'blue and green must never be seen' and the predominant colours of the card must be blue and green. I've used an Alota Rubber Stamps image and coloured with markers. The background paper is June Bug by BasicGrey with green Bazzil and blue Canson card. My three embellishements are the ribbon, gems and stickles glitter glue. TFL. Chris x
