Happy Birthday - Ladybug
Well this card actually covers 3 different challenges I was doing, firstly Okies second sketch from Mar 11, Day 17 from 365 Cards & Splitcoaststampers LSC211.
Okies sketch you can see above, 365 cards was Buttons & Bows - use 3 buttons & 3 bows, no more, no less & LSC211 was to make a card with a bug on it, using no more than 4 layers & no patterned paper.
So keeping in with Okies sketch, I then used red & black CS, cut a 3 1/2" ladybug from Doodlecharms Cricut Cart, layered some red & black ribbon, attached the bows & buttons, then stamped Happy Birthday on red CS, matting it onto black CS. Oh I stuck so googley eyes on the ladybug for a bit of fun. To finish it off I used black gel pen & dotted around the red border & over the top of the stamp so it stood out more.
(I posted this card down further with all of my Okies cards under Mar 11.)
