Ladybug Hugs

Hey everyone,  I made this fun card for the Weekly Inspiration Challenge over at Craftmad.  Yes, I set the theme after I learnt what Ladybug Larvae look like.... click here to see.  I also used the layout of the card that was set for last weeks Weekly Inspiration at Craftmad.

Started this with a BE white gloss card.  Found some lovely glossy red paper and this wonderful ladybug paper that I have had for ages waiting for the special card.  I ran some white card through my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add as a panel on the card.  Thought this green paper looked like a lovely leaf or grassy field.  I cut the edges with my Clever Cut paper trimmer using the wavy edge blade.  The greeting I printed out on the computer which I am tending to do more and more.  Why I haven't used the computer more in my card making I don't know.  The ladybug made it's way into my collection at some tome through a friend in a swap.  Isn't it so cute.  I used leftover pieces of black sticker to create the little trail.
