Happy Saturday EVERYONE!!  Hope your weekend is off to a nice start.  My house is relatively quiet - I still have my 4 kids, 2 dogs and DH here, but the 4 additional kids (cousins) and their mom (SIL) are gone.  Now if we can all just get back on a normal sleep schedule, everything will be back to "normal.";)

I'm SUPER EXCITED for today's BUGABOO CHALLENGE because I had an AWESOME time working on my card!!  I think I combined the most challenges I have EVER combined up to this point for this card:)

I guess you could say this is a gate fold card, although the idea came to me from looking at the sketch for this week's Belli Challenge.  I used SU garden green CS and the dimensions on the card are 6 x 6.25.  The DP I used is from Me and My Big Ideas.  Stitched ribbon is from my stash.  Buttons are Basic Grey (red & green) and SU (so saffron).  Sentiment on outside of card is computer generated, cut with nesties and daubed with SU only orange.  It is velcro-d on to keep card shut and moves up or down for you to open card fully.  It is attached with Basic Grey brad.  Interior of card has SU tangerine tango, embossed with Sizzix EF and then daubed with SU bermuda bay.  Beach ball is SU stamp, stamped in SU bermuda bay, cut with punch and colored with Atyou Spicas, and Copics.  Sentiment is Inky Antics, stamped in SU bermuda bay, cut with nesties then daubed with Bermuda Bay.  BUGABOO IMAGE of Ruby is colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas, cut with nesties and daubed with SU cameo coral.  As I said, I had such fun making this card and I really hope you like it too!  Let me know:)

I also made this card for the following challenges:
FUSSY AND FANCY - use stitches, scallops and sparkle
DARE U 2 DIGI - stitching
COOKING IT UP WITH KATIE - buttons, bows and blue
NO TIME TO STAMP - 2 of something (2 DPs)
PENNY'S CHALLENGES - 1 ribbon, 2 DPs, 3 embellishments
BELLI CHALLENGE - sketch, something from stash and something that moves on your project

Thanks for stopping by.  Now make sure you head over to CATCH THE BUG CHALLENGE BLOG to link your project and to check out the work of the FABULOUS BUGABOO DT!!
