CardzTV Masculine Card Challenge

I'm Buggy For You - CardzTV masculine card challenge.

I was excited to get my first two stamp sets from Mary at CardzTV this week.  She had a masculine card challenge, so I decided to use the Buggy stamp set that I got from her on this card for my husband.  I used my Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge for the cuts and inked the edges of everything to give the card more of an aged look.  My husband is really into dinosaurs and fossils, so I knew that he would appreciate this bug from this cartridge. 

I embossed the leaf with my Cuttlebug grass folder and inked over the embossing with some green ink.  I like the effect that this gave to the paper.  I also embossed the bug with my Cuttlebug folder that looks like scales, sorry I can't remember the exact name of it....something about mosaic tile. 

The "I'm Buggy For You" stamp was really perfect for this card.  I'm very happy with her stamps so far.  They have GREAT sticking power, so I know that they will last me a long time.  I'll definitely ad them to my favorite stash of craft items to use!
