A BOLD Ladybug Hug

A second post today! I decided I should have put this on today too. I was thrilled on Saturday when my Alota Rubber Stamps arrived! Can you imagine how hard it was to leave them sitting on the desk until Sunday night! But I added some EZmount to a few and stamped out some images!


I just LOVE the new lady bugs! How stinking cute is this guy or is it a girl? I wanted the card to be bold just like the image that I colored with my Copic Markers and Stickles for the water drops.
I decided to follow this weeks Friday Sketcher sketch as it left lots of room to be simple and bold. I found a black Bazzil card stock and some scrap red to mat the image and make the corner. That was fun, I cut the triangle piece, border punched the top edge and then used a hole punch to create "lady bug" dots on it. Found a piece of red with black dots ribbon for the top and then added the sentiment Ladybug Hugs that came in the set in a metal book plate and brads. Simple but I like how it came out... these images just have so many possibilites.. I can't wait to mount all of the set and do more! Make sure to check them out HERE... they are so cute!
Now I have tooooo runnn I am so late for my date with Mom and my Sister! BYE!

love the bold red and black on this card Michelle, and great idea to punch the holes to get the dots (must remember that). Cute image too and fabulous collouring with the copics. annie x

this came out cute! love the lacy ladybug corner you made. You know, I'm not sure if it's a boy or girl - guess it could be both. Maybe if you extend the eyelashes longer it could be more girl. either way it's cute!

Michelle, this card is absolutely adorable! You've done wonders with that cute stamp. I love the bold colors and how you used the dots in so many different ways.
Hope you've had a great time with Mom and Sis :)

Loved your boy Diego and his story. You're blessed to be living in a place where you can keep so many four-legged friends.
