Imagine That #8 Ladybug Friends

It’s time for Challenge #8 at Imagine That! Digis by Kris and if you took part in the last challenge you will have received the Ladybug Friends pack which has this really cute image of the ladybird and the little girl image with 4 different sentiments

Pop over to the store to see this image and all the other amazing sets. This set is available as a coloured option and there are some fabulous digi paper packs too so lots to choose from.

* * * * * * * *
I used a sketch from A Die for A Sketch for the layout. I coloured  my image with promarkers and flexmarkers, then used a Nellie Snellen die to cut it out and a black matting layer. The spotty paper is from the Family Ties First Edition pad and I thought it would be perfect to go with the spotty ladybirds.

I chose to use the caught a bug sentiment but split it up to fit the card better and follow the layout of the sketch. It is quite a large message and goes to prove that with a little thought you can split a pre-printed design up and use for your own purposes. To finish off I simply added some Candi dots from Craftwork Cards.
