Happy Friday! I've Scored With A Bug!!!

Yay...It's Friday!! And I can now finally tell you that me, myself, and little I, (little??) have all been invited to join Bugaboo as a Guest Designer for August and September!!
Yay! I'll stop jigging now, coz I've gone a bit giddy! (Ohoo ice cream head ache!)
So!! Here's my very First Card For Bugaboo Stamps using today's fab Friday Freebie!

You can download her all week from the Store where you can also buy the rest of her team mates!! So get your boots on, get over there, download her, colour her up and join in with some of the challenges over on Bugaboo, or even the many Challenges they sponsor.
My Card. First, of course, I did my normal trick of edging the pearl card with a black Promarker. Then I coloured a PNG AKV-Girls-Soccer-7 in PaintNet, saved her to 'My Craft Studio' added my own stripy paper and the Fluffy Clouds paper (PinkPetticoat) resized everything, putting the fluffy clouds over the striped papers and the Soccer Girl over the Fluffy Clouds... easy! (although if you've gone cross eyed at this point...or your brain has frozen over, I'll understand...)
Then copied Soccer Girl again so I had two of her, for a little bit of 3D-ing... printed it all out....and oops...she had green hair...but it suits her, don't you think!?! I like the green's very now, and will be, until I get more ink for my printer!
I cut a slice off the stripy paper, put in another line of black Promarker down the card, fixed it all onto the front of the card, scribbled round the edges with a fine black pen, cut the other soccer girls legs off... her pony tail and her arms then fixed her body, head, knees, boots and ball, back over the other image using silicone glue.
Finished by adding a bit of glitter to her pony-tail clip, the foam flowers, (coz they aren't so 'girlie' as other flowers) and the green gems. (Silicone glue and a Quickie Glue Pen)
The foam flowers I cut out using a punch and a die-cut. Had them scattered about my worktop most of the week as a little 'hint' as to what was coming... along with the soccer girl papers inside the card. (There was a tiny square of these papers in my WOYWW photo) If you're not sure how to do this there's a 'How to make Your Own Papers' Tutorial over at Bugaboo HERE by Min.
I coloured the digi in PaintNet first, saved as a PGN and then just copied and pasted on to a new Word page and continued to copy and paste until I had enough, turning them every which way.
I also 'tiled' her. (In My Craft Studio) Once printed and cut out, I coloured the strip with a yellow Promarker.
As you can see by the picture, one side of the inside of the card has a pocket, so you can add a gift token or birthday money! (any family watching, it won't be that much...)
The Font is a freebie it's called Dragline BTN dm and you can download that HERE
