This week our challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle is themed BUGS ... get your gorgeous laces and vintage embellishments out!  We are sponsored by the fabuous Eureka Stamps, and we got to play with some fun images! I adore ladybugs, so I created my card using the Ladybug Border image...

I printed the image on white card, and coloured only with red markers.  I trimmed my 'border' to fit my card, and found that I had a large ladybug left over, so I trimmed her out, and set her aside.  I matted the image with bright green and a watermelon red paper, and fixed it straight to the cardbase.  Using a Create with TLC scripture printed on vellum, and my leftover ladybug, I filled the whitespace without too much fuss.... I fixed the vellum with doublesided tape only under the ladybug, and I drew her antennae in with a signo pen.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: 

Addicted to Stamps and More #39 CAS (10/4)
Crafting By Design - Animals (10/4)
WordArt Wednesday - #74 Anything Goes (10/4)

Come on over and join our BUGS challenge at Card Crafter's Circle!  Thanks for peepin'!
