Week 291: BUG

It's time for a new cue and after last week's rather abstract thinking, we thought we go with a more familiar theme.  Plenty of room for interpretation with this one too and we can't wait to see where your thoughts take you!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Let's see what the design team and guest designer created for inspiration!
