Ladybug Time of Year ... ugh!

Hello All ... Happy Thursday!
Since it's a gloomy day outdoors today, I get to stay inside
and play ... the mulching will have to wait!

But before I begin getting inky and make a mess, I wanted to
share with you a cute card I made awhile back using a Bugaboo digital
image called 'flowerlblove'.
Bugaboo Stamps

I felt it was the right time to share this
card since I have already started seeing lady bugs showing up
in my crafting room ... ugh!  Here we go!  LOL

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring and after coloring the flowers yellow, I was in search of a designer paper in my stash that would help bring my image to life ... I think I found just the right one!  What do you think?

In my scrapbooking stash I came across a sheet of EK Success dimensional ladybug stickers so I just had to position a few here and there to tie in with this adorable image.

So cute! Well, you know I love Bugaboo, and I love ladybugs, too. Not sure I'd want them in my stamp room, but I like seeing them in the garden. The paper really does work with the image. Super fun, Darlene!

This is a cute card inside and out. I have a friend that used to buy ladybugs and puts them in the flower garden.

We are having a real bad ant problem once again, it seems to happen every spring. Yes that paper is just perfect and love the little ladybug in the corner wanting to come join them :)
