Ladybugs Birthday Card

This week I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps and I’ve had my eye on this image for ages and couldn’t wait to start colouring it in ! It’s called Scene it-Ladybugs. There is something about the colour of a ladybug that is delightful and just so very cute! I added Glossy Accents to add some shine to my ladybugs,flower centers and butterflies. I used Sizzix Buttons #5 and die cut my buttons so they exactly match my card! I added a hit of blue to my colouring to create a sunny spring day! As you can see I made an easel card, because this year I decided to try to do more with construction style cards and projects in an effort to expand my horizons. I used hot pink knitting wool, tied off on my buttons to add some texture to my card and spotted designer paper to accentuate my lady bugs spots!
