This week's challenge is an easy one .. ..
just show us your bugs!
The Design Team have come up with some stunning ATCs to inspire you with much prettier little bugs - butterflies, bees, dragonflies and ladybugs. As long as you have at least one Magnolia stamped image on your ATC you can join in the fun with Them, so your bugs could be brads, stickers or paper embellishments if you don't have any of the Magnolia cuties.
