Ladybird acrobatics !
Hello to you all - I hope you had a great weekend in the sunshine.
Are you all ready for the world cup ? We're excited about it here - I'm pretty sure we've already spent a small fortune on panini football stickers and we have amassed a very large pile of swapsies !
My hubby and Issac sit for ages pouring over this book and I am certain that hubby is enjoying it every bit as much as Issac - if not more !
Well with the boys occupied with the footie book and the other little hooligan asleep I had some time to put together a card.
How cute is this digi stamp ? I love it. I got it from Pink Cat Studio - they have loads of fab digi stamps.
I've coloured the image with my copic markers and and added some glossy accents to the ladybird spots and eyes.
My PP is called ebony and alabaster - the way you look tonight - by Black market paper society.
I have also used my red copic to add a border to the patterned paper - I tried matting it but it looked too harsh - this way the pattern still comes through - I like this effect and will def use again.
The swirl was cut using a sizzix die and my bigshot then punched the circles for my sentiment and the insides of my flowers.
The sentiment is a clear stamp from a kelly panacci birthday set.
For the inside I used my computer to type a verse from a poem I found on the internet (changed slighty) author unknown. And added a couple of ladybirds from my lovely mums See-D's cute as a bug set (thanks mum x) and mounted inside on more of the patterned paper.
Think that's about it !
I am adding this card to the following challenges:

Sir Stampalot Challenge - Punch it (circles)

Thanks for looking x
