Red flower and ladybugs

I really had fun with this card and like the end results. I used the sketch challenge from Taylored Expressions #90. For the base card I used red felt card which I have just received from Blue Edge Crafts. It is such a lovely texture.....soft to touch. Next a layer of the ladybug paper which I have had in my collection for ages and never found the right use for. Next I used a flower image from SU Playful Petals. I cut around it using the scalloped edged nestabilities. Coloured the image with felt pen and aqua pen with watercolour pencils. I added a bling centre and went over the circle of dots with glitter glue. Finished the cards with four leaves I cut from some wonderful paper I had laminated ages ago to do a book cover.
