Ladybug Party

I made this fun card for two challenges. The first challenge was for Gina K's Release Party challenge #3 - a sketch. I really enjoyed making this fun card since the other challenge was to make a funny card - Paper Garden Projects Birthday Blog Bash week 1). I used SU's "Very Punny" set. I found a matstack that I had purchased several years ago and it had a few sheets of this CUTE bug paper. Of course I had to use the ladybug from the SU set! I masked off the sentiment which is directly below the bug, inked it in black, took off the tape and stamped it. I also stamped it again, colored it and then cut it out. I popped it up with a pop-dot after I had cut the main image out with the spellbinder, embossed it, masked off the ladybug and sponged around it with Bashful Blue. *deep breath!* lol The rest was easy. Cut, adhere and show it off!

In real life the ladybug really pops off the card and is the highlight of the party! I have it showcased directly in front of my laptop on my craft room wall. FUN! (I also have other cards on my wall too. I'm trying to clean up a bit so I can take some photos of my work space and craft room.)

You can probably see in the picture below that the ladybug is floating in front of the card. lol

Here's the inside of the card. This time the ladybug is flat... but still so cute!

More to come in a few minutes!

LOL, this is fabulous, that Ladybird's face is a picture (oh by the way we call them Ladybirds over here),the paper is too lovely and the sentiment did make me giggle. One of those cards just can't help smiling at.
Take care & keep smiling
