All Things Unity Challenge #43

I'm back with my final guest designer post for All Things Unity, this time for ATU43 which is to use a bug on your card! That's easy because there are very few Unity Kits of the Month that don't have a bug (or some kind of winged creature) in it. What's not easy is how to explain what goes on inside my head. Yes, this card is ultra weird but not if you're already laughing or if I tell you that I combined it with HYCCT1109: Things are Looking Up and used the PDCC105 colours! I meant to make this for HYCCT1127: Pickled Tink but I forgot about the splash of pink. Then it wouldn't have suited the PDCC105 colours anyway. Maybe I'll make another. I'm sure I can come up with another weird, er, humorous card. At least I'll crack myself up, if no one else. ;Þ

The frightened or amused girl is a retired Suzi Blu called Pretty Girl, the bees are from Better Together and the sentiment is from The Best is Yet To Be. All have never been inked before so they are happy now! I hope you'll play along with your Unity and Ippity stamps!! :)p>
