Sweet Little Bug

I was able to play along with the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  You can find the sketch and thread HERE.  I used one of the new Pure Innocence sets that I just ADORE!  It's the Pure Innocence Ladybug!  Big surprise, huh?  LOL  When I saw this set I just HAD to have it.  The sentiments are perfect for me, especially since I call my kids my "sweet little bugs"!  :)  Can you imagine how many sweet little ladybug cards my daughters will find in their lunch boxes?  :)  Too cute!

I paper pieced the ladybug suit and colored the image in using Copic markers.  I couldn't fit the sentiment "on" the card, so it's hanging off a bit.  :)  The little embellishments were little flowers I found in the Target dollar bin ages ago.  I just punched little circles out of white and pink cardstock and layered them along with the little flower gems.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you're staying warm wherever you are!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Pure Innocence Ladybug (MFT); Paper- Ooh La La (My Mind's Eye), Sweet Blush, True Black (PTI); Accessories- paper piercer, ribbon (Darice), Copic markers, white gel pen;  Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"

Oh Charmaine! This is a fabulous card. I just received this set in the mail and can't wait until I'm stamping again so I can use it. I check your blog all the time for inspiration. Thanks.
