BUGS and kisses

Happy 2015 everyone!  I know it's already the fifth of January but given the fact that I just returned home from my family reunion trip, I feel that 2015 has just started.

What's a better way to start 2015 with new craft supplies?  I've used the new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to make this happy card:

It's a window card - one of my favorite kinds of cards to make.  I think that a window on a handmade card makes a world of difference from store bought cards.

Here's a shot of the card when it's closed.  The clouds and the sun are stuck to the card front, casting a shadow over the scene:

I've used a ton of new Lawn Fawn goodies on this card:  The Bugs and Kisses stamp and coordinating die set, stitched circle die and Hello Sunshine die.  I've also used the Ranger Ink Black Sparkle embossing powder for the very first time.  I like that the there are little sparkles peeking out from the traditional black embossing powder, making the black less harsh on a cute card like this.

My card is entering the following challenges:
A gem of a challenge - something new
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft - All Things New
Suzie Bee's Bloomin' - Anything Goes with a Twist of CAS
Sweet Stampin' - New

Thanks for stopping by!
