I created this birthday card for a very special niece who is celebrating her 18th birthday. When she was much younger she loved everything "ladybug".
Uptown Fundamentals paper (black pattern and gold foil vellum)
Dreaming Big stamp and Thin Cut Die (ladybug)
One in a Million stamp
White Daisy CS
Black Shin Han Touch Marker
Gold Metallic Marker--borders white sentiment panel
Thin craft foam die cut to pop up ladybugs
My card was inspired by this Try Stampin' on Tuesday card sketch:
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday--Anything Goes
Sunny Day Crafting--Anything Goes or Disney
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge--New Something (new stamps)
