Just Magnolia # 17 & Simon Says Challenge...a wee bit late...Don't BUG me...!

Well, this card is pretty late and it has put me through the ringer let me tell ya, but I thought I would share it anyways! I started making it last weekend for the Just Magnolia # 17 Martine's Fabulous sketch and for the Buttons and Bows challenge at Simon says Stamp Challenge!
I had this idea to make the tag into a bookmark and I had the perfect sentiment in mind. So I typed it up on the computer and then I thought this sweet Tilda with a "bug" would be perfect for my "don't BUG me" bookmark!

I made my cardbase 6x6 from Bazzill Basics cardstock and used BG 6X6 Junebug papers and inked the edges with Distress inks and stamped the stitching with my Kelly Panacci stitch stamps with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
I stamped Tilda on Prism Simply Smooth cardstock and coloured her with my Copics then my little disaster happened...when I turned Tilda over onto my splat mat to add adhesive to the back of her, ink from my previous distressing and stamping transferred to her face. Needless to say she had a little Frankenstein thing happening with Kelly Panacci stitches on her face,lol!!! Well, I can laugh now but at the time I was sooooooo frustrated that I packed it in and well didn't get a chance to work on it until this afternoon! So, I coloured another Tilda and finished up the card and bookmark tag!

I used some of these Prima flowers for the first time and love them with the Junebug paper. The buttons are from my stash and the bows are tied with Karen Foster Scrappers Floss! I used a QK Ladybug die cut and cut out the sentiments on the tag with a QK tag and the sentiment on the card is cut out with my Oval Nesties. I add this yummy ribbon and some BG Junebug brads too!
So there ya have it! I am pretty happy with this card and tag after all that frustration and delay in getting it done!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
