Make my life brighter

The weekend is almost over and I've been getting stuff ready for the week but I squeezed in time to make a quick card too. :) I've had this stamp set for awhile and have only ever used the little dragonfly from it. Something that I am trying to make more of an effort is making use of all of the stamps in a stamp set.

Today I used the lightening bug. My kids love seeing lightening bugs and I remember seeing bunches of them out in fields when I was a kid so this was fun to make for me. For this card, I stamped out the little bug and colored him with my zig clean color markers. I didn't get very detailed with the coloring although I did go over it with a sparkle pen. Then I used a die to cut some dotted patterned paper out for his background. I glued the pattern paper down and used foam tape to prop the bug on top. I stamped the sentiment underneath and added the little dotted lines on the side.
Stamps: Paper Smooches - Giddy Bugs
Dies: Sizzix -Decorative Label 4
Inks - Zig clean color markers; Mama Elephant - Ocean
