Bugs are creatures in my book so decided to use the bug design paper from Dreamin' Big. Have often used the pretty floral on the back side.  A little over a week ago I tried the bug side for a recent birthday card for one of my grandsons using the MoJo Monday sketch challenge...however, was not happy with it and ended up putting it in my stash for maybe some time later.  

Well, this time was the later...I just needed to do a little makeover. The focal point was changed from a sentiment to the cute bugs and a different sentiment for this creatures challenge...and this change made a big difference. It seemed to soften up the background paper and your eye was drawn to the focal point.  I bee happy now.

I haven't been able to use this bug paper... this is a great way to put it to use! I love the sentiment and the critters :) Such an adorable card (and I NEVER thought I would say that about paper with bugs on it!)

This is so cute! I know you struggled with this paper, but I love what you did with it!

Fabulous, Sue! Great use of the insects - maybe now I am inspired to use my insect stamp set!
