Ladibug Gal

Here's a fun card using gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress and a super cute image from Sweet Pea stamps artist Sandra Caldwell called Ladibug Gal.  Isn't she adorable?  Here I am using a simple combination of papers to make a quick and cute card.
I started with a thick card base that's a dark red, perfect to go with the colors on this image, it's called Haute Red Brawny 100#.  The decorative layer comes from a 6x6" piece of Hambly Studio Screenprints.  These are sold as 12" sheets or in value packs of 6x6" combos.  The one I used comes from the 12" sheet called Vintage Patchwork.  What's awesome about this sheet is that you get 4 different 6x6" patterns which are the perfect size for cards!  I took the top left quarter (if you have looked at the photo) and cut it out.  Then I used a die cut to trim out the very center of the paper so that the corners would match.  The remainder of the paper  I used to them cut out Memory Box die cut corners.  I printed out my image on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Paper and colored her in copic markers.

What I think (in hindsight) would make a totally awesome addition to this cute card is a tiny button of a ladybuy to go right on her nose. I can see how she's looking, that would be too cute, in fact, I may add that to this project before sending it to a friend.

I hope this card inspired you today.  Cheers, Holley
