Cute Ladybug

Hello everyone, I've managed to make another card so the migraine must be wearing off, at last....

I've used a Bugaboo image again, I think that they could be my favourite images at the moment, they're sooo cute. I've based the card on the Catch the Bug - time for a sketch challenge. 

I've coloured the image with promarkers and added glamour dust wings. The backing paper is from a cd (Crafters Companion - Cute Companions Vol 1). The 2 panels are coredinations card which has been embossed and sanded. All elements are matted with lime green and everything has been edged with frayed burlap distress ink.I've added some organza ribbon and some butterfly ribbon from my stash and added the sentiment 'On your special day'. The card is A5.
I would also like to enter this in the following:-
Paper sundaes - let's get cute
Whimsy stamps - distressing
Divas by design - buttons and/or bows

Happy crafting
Helen xx
