little bluebug


I played with my Little Lady set by Paper Trey Ink, isn't she cute? In my fantasy life ladybugs would be all colors, not just red and black Ü

I wanted some big flowers to go with her, so I used the flower from my Looks Like Spring set by SU! I stamped 2 in So Saffron and Brocade Blue classic ink and cut them out. I punched the flower centers out of the patterned paper with a 5/8" circle punch by EK Success. I stamped the Brocade card base with Brocade ink using the Linen set by SU! and the bigger flower from Little Lady. I thought the Oh Baby Boy paper by Basic Grey matched the SU! flowers really well. I punched the corner piece with my punch by EK Success out of Certainly Celery CS and stamped it with the smaller flower in the Little Lady set, and put a celery brad in the center. I adhered the flowers, ladybug (she's popped with Dimensionals) and corner piece on a Very Vanilla CS base. And, put that on Certainly Celery that I cut using my tiny scalloped scissors by Prova Craft. I tied the celery and blue gingham on the card and added the main image with Dimensionals.




The antennas on this little bluebug are green swarovski crystals from Starlit Studio, those crystals are so yummy, they really add the sparkle!


I hope y'all are having a fun safe Memorial weekend. It's crazy around here! The masses come to this lake area from EVERYWHERE!!

I totally agree that Ladybugs should be all different colors! Love the card - and you, too.

I hope you safely avoid any traffic snarls and bad tempers that crowds seem to bring with them.
