Ladybug card

Today I have a wonderful little card to share with you. At the end of this post, I'll share the Cricut Cartridges and stamps I used.  

I added lots of dimension under the leaves using some mini-pop-dots. I just love the polka-dot back ground paper I used to represent the sky! :)

See all the dimension.  This isn't the prettiest view of my card, but it really shows how I popped up selected leaves on the tree branches.

I added little pearls to the center of all the flowers and gel pen stitching to the dark blue mat. 

Instead of a ribbon, I embellished this card with a strip of lace! :)

Here's the cute little ladybug!  She's also attached with pop dots.

This is the inside of the card.  See how I added additional flowers and leaves! So cute.
