Ladybug



Happy Hello everyone! I have a super cute card to show you today! Here I am in my craft room when I REALLY need to be working on things for my son's graduation party which is now less than a month away!!! LOL! Gosh! I am such a procrastinator!
I really like how this card turned out! The papers just worked perfect! I cut the fancy frame from Elegant Edges with the matching mat and pop dotted it to the card. The ladybug was cut from Paisley and I pop dotted the wings just on the bottom edge, gluing the top down. I love the look it gives the ladybug, like she's going to take off. The background bottom was embossed with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder and I punched a border strip to separate the 2 papers. I added a ribbon down the side with a sentiment banner. The banner is held down with a brad which I gathered the ribbon into the center with.
Have you all seen this trick? I hadn't and I LOVE IT!!! It makes it SO easy to create sentiment banners!
Just use a square punch to punch out the corners! Easy Peasy! LOL!
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
1. RRRR- Black, White, and 1 accent color + ribbon
2. BBTB2- Ladybug or Bee
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
