365 Cards Day 30 & Polka Doodle

This is the ladybird inspired card I have made for an old challenge on 365 Cards for Day 30.

I have used this week's sketch and challenge over at Polka Doodle but unfortunately it will not be allowed into the competition as I should have submitted it by 12 noon GMT. Blinking shame that, but I still enjoyed making it and I haven't done a criss cross card in his style before so I've learnt a new technique too.

You had to use 3 paper and at least 1 flower. The stripe and plaid are from K & Co, the spotty paper is HOTP. The digistamp image is from Sweet & Sassy and was coloured using Marvy le Plume pens. The flower was originally is silk sunflower in my living room and was orange. I used a permanent marker to change the colour, quite pleased with how this turned out :)

I covered tyhe back of the flower with a circle of white card which I decorated inside. The flower is a handmade mulberry one with a small black gem and I used a gel pen to add a bit of doodling.

That's another old 365 ticked off my list... YAY
