Umbrella Ants - Hugs


I created this card using a sketch from Sassy Studios Design and pretty much copied it as it was laid out. I astonished myself in that I did not embellish it any further ( I do like my embellishments:O)!  I found I quite liked it as is! The darling image is from a Doodle Pantry stamp set from their April 1st release (see here) and is free with purchase April 1st thru April  24th.. The Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #22  is still on till April 24th and you receive a free stamp set just for participating (theme  - must use a Doodle Pantry image  and  they do have freebies to choose from),  plus a Doodle Pantry prize if you win. All good deals , do go take a look!
