Ladybug Scene Card

Hi! Thanks for hoping with us along
 Flowers and Ladybugs Blog Hop (Day2)!! 

If you came from Nicolette's blog (Beyond Scrapin'), you are in the right place.
If you just came across this hop and would like to start from the beginning, please go back to Nicolette's blog (Beyond Scrapin').

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.

I love the shape of your card! The dashed line really accents it and brings things into focus.
