Ladybug Bloom


OMG, this is a first for me. Not only have I completed and uploaded by card for the Delightful Inspiration challenge before Thursday night...... but I have actually managed to complete a whole month's worth of the challenges Wooo Hoo !!!

Faith hadn't drawn a new image for last week's entrants so we were given a voucher for $2.50 off any image of our choice in the shop. I was really pleased as the image I chose was Ladybug Bloom and I had missed out on this in a previous month and absolutely adored the image. I mean it is so me, looks great in bright colours, layered up 5 times with 3d foam and I even drew a cute face on the ladybird :) Another bonus was it was only $2 so I put the extra towards another digi. Thank you Faith, I love you :) xxx

Anyhoo, this gorgeous little beauty was made using a bright (and i do mean sunglasses bright) orange cardblank from a Let's Make Cards pack. The glittery DP is from DCWV. It is onle of those little mat stacks and it was the perfect fit, no cutting required. The image and sentiment have been matted onto a scrap from the same pad which is a red and white diagonal pattern.

The image of course has been coloured with Promarkers. I layered up the flower and the little ladybird and drew her smile on, I mean how can she not smile when she has such a pretty flowery dress on?

To finish I added a spotty ribbon and some Prima flowers with a bead cap and a gem brad. This is just a complete Made By Mandy signature card, bright, bold colourful and cute.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - 7" x 5"
Image - Ladybug Bloom by Designed 2 Delight
Paper - DCWV Citrus Mat Stack
Sentimnet - Red Hot Bed
Embellishments - Prima flowers, American Crafts gem brad, Ribbon
Tools - 3D Foam & Scissors, Promarkers
Techniques - Decoupage

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
