Bug Me card

My daughter likes to plan her birthday party in advance......way in advance!  So, for this year's theme she wants a spring party.  Mind you, her birthday is in NOVEMBER!!   I decided that was just fine, though, because the big box stores have had napkins, cups, and decor for about 80% off over the summer!
I started making a trial card last week and here's how it turned out.  We have this color scheme, plus Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry in the decor and paper products.  Interesting, huh?  I got the idea for this card from a card I saw made by Becky Roberts.  I'm not sure that I'm in love with this one yet, though.  It's a start!

Stamps:  Bug Me
Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Real Red
Paper:  Whisper White, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Real Red
Accessories:  Large Scallop edgelit, finishing touches edgelit, Flower Garden embossing folder
And just for fun, this is what we got to enjoy watching during our club meeting Saturday.  I love it when the deer come eat the crabapples each summer! 
These two babies were literally less than 8 feet from our window in the kitchen!  So precious!
