Where have all the BUGS gone?

Where have all the bugs gone 2015  f
Sorry have not been around been having problems with my Arthritis (all over) but bad in my hands. So had to go in and have some steroid injections in my hands (ouch), so the medication is finally working and I can type and make some cards again. Why does life do this us? I suffered with (really bad) migraines most of my life when I was younger and then they seam to kind of go away and now I suffer with Arthritis and it is both kinds. I have to remember to tell myself it could be worse, right?
Okay this card was for last weeks Twisted Thursday challenge and the twisted was to make a gatefold card. Now my wonderful quilling you see, I did these a long time ago when my hands worked really good. I thought the bugs would go nice with the boot. Our sponsor for this month is Bugaboo. My images is called “Rain Boot”.

This what I did to the inside. I used a 6x6 stencil from crafters workshop called mini mod circles and used brilliance moonlight white. Add some rick rack, more pearls and brads.

The flowers I used Nellie Swellen punches. I used a foil to punch out the flowers, another long lost something I found. I also put the foil behind  the die cut.  You can see the ribbon a little more in this picture.

I hope you can tell… One of my blogging friends did this and I thought this was pretty neat. Cut the Spellbinder die out 2 times and moved one a little to the side. I think that looks pretty cool.
