A True Oldie But Goodie

Catch The Bug Is home to another Oldie But Goodie Thursday, today! If you're like me, you find some much renewed inspiration when you see all the fun new projects that are created with older images brought back to life with new colors, new creations, and new energy! And, today is no exception! The team at Catch The Bug has really outdone themselves, today! You really need to check out thier awesome talent! Hurry over to Catch The Bug to see all the wonderful inspiration featuring oldie but goodie images from Bugaboo Stamps!

I wanted to talk a minute about how I came to get this awesome flowered paper used on my creation. The team at Catch The Bug did a patterened paper swap, recently, and my paper swap buddy was the wonderful Lori Padberg. She sent me the fabulous flowered paper, along with many others! Wow, I was in paper heaven and couldn't wait to use some of it! I had the perfect striped paper to match this lovely flowered paper and wanted to show off the papers. So, I went with the clean and simple look for today's card. However, if you know anything at all about the crotchety 'ole Stella, then you know she is ANYTHING but CLEAN or SIMPLE?! LOL! She's a snarky 'ole thing, but then, that's what we love about her, isn't it?

My project today uses the image, Stella Tidbits - Ray of Sunshine, by Bugaboo Stamps. She's colored with Promarkers. The striped paper is from my stash. I found the scrap of black ribbon in my ribbon scrap drawer. My card layout uses Repeat Impressions Sketch F2212.

I love the way the clean and simple look of this card shows off the image, and papers.
