Cute Little Ladybug

This card was part of a set I gave to Jason's fiancee, Tina. {Yeah, if we marry our guys our names will be the same} It is a series of Thank You cards for her have on hand, she works at a bank so she always needs them. I presented them to her in a small, flat tin that I purchased at the dollar store.

I started with the Soft Sky base. I adhered the harlequin dp on the card base. I then dry embossed Pale Plum cardstock using the Bloom Dots folder from Cuttlebug. I then matted the dp with Soft Sky.

The image is stamped with So Saffron, Pale Plum, and black inks. I then cut it and the mat out with nestabilities and adhered with foam squares.

I stamped the sentiment onto a tag using a Cuttlebug die. I threaded the blue grosgrain through it and then cut a slit in the fold of the card so that the knot could be tied on the front.
Sorry to post the same images, but I haven't been able to stamp in about a week. I am hoping to get some time do be creative this weekend. Of course, were are having painters over, our driveway is being fixed, and a friend is coming to repair the AC. All this on top of my normal weekend duties like cleaning and food shopping. I have a feeling the crafting time will be short. However, I'll be carving out a few hours nonetheless.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
