Ladybug Birthday Card


This week has flown by! I've been busy studying for an online class I'm taking. The final test is 200 questions that has a three hour time limit. It's been years since I've taken a test and I'm crossing my fingers that my memory is up to the challenge. So, if you believe in the power of prayer... say a little prayer for me!

When I sat down to create this Ladybug Birthday Card I was in the mood for something bright and cheerful. I love ladybugs and this image by Bugaboo is one of my favorites. I colored it with Copic markers and added the clouds using a punched out Pansy flower and sponging with Bashful Blue ink. The design comes from one of the sketch choices at Tuesday Morning Sketches. The patterned papers are part of my hoarded stash and are both from American Crafts. The sentiment stamp is from the TPC Studios Greetings set and the final touch was some purple twine from Doodledug Design.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

My Ladybug Birthday Card is entered into the following challenges:
