Buggy Birthday Card

This Birthday Card is for my Grandson Dominic who is celebrating his 4th birthday tomorrow.  Bug is just a nickname we all use when greeting him and since I've had this Piggy Tales Bug paper forever, the two just seemed right.  For the sentiment, I stamped each letter, used an exacto knife to cut, outlined with a micron pen and adhered using Zip Dry.  The paper has the same pattern on both sides but sized smaller on one side.  I added a strip of the smaller pattern and then fussy cut several of the larger critters.  The larger critters have stickles on them and are raised with pop dots.  To keep the ribbon from sliding all over, I made a small slit in the top fold and threaded the ribbon through.  On the reverse side, one of those critters is holding the ribbon in place with a tad of glue.  Karen Foster makes a scrap floss that is perfect for threading through teeny tiny button holes.  The green button...I made with filmo, shaped, baked and doodled.
