This is the final day of the Serendipity Blog Hop and our last die to show you is this beautiful Ladybug! It is so detailed! The scoring and different size circles are just wonderful. It may be cliche, but I immediately thought red, white & black. A little funny, because ALL of the ladybugs we have around here are orange and black. Must be a different variety. Anyway, I die cut 3 ladybugs…1 red, 1 black & 1 white. The red is the main ladybug and I used the lg dots from the black version & small dots from the white version & I added dots w/ a white gel pen to the centers of the lg black dots.. I added a white die cut blossom layer underneath the ladybug and a die cut white flower.

The red background was stamped w/ a cute little ladybug image and some black & white dp that I’ve had forever seemed to be a good match. The greeting was die cut with a fishtail banner & I found a package of little ladybug clothespins so I added it to the banner. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now I’ll send you on to your next stop…the blog of the wonderful Karen Amidon!

  14. Super layout. I love ladybugs. Every year we go out and gather up huge piles of them in the forest to put in our garden. They are so beneficial for handling pests. Love this new die.
