Ladybug Bloom

It's that time again....the weekly challenge from Faith @ D2D. If you need any inspiration, head on over to the Cards Ideas blog @ and check out the design teams card. They are AWESOME!! I really wanted to PP this design and make things pop up on the card. I actually printed it numerous times on different colored cardstocks. I inked my white background for a sky look and 'twisted' my flower to gave it a more full look. I also wanted to make it appear as if the lady bug was getting ready to fly off the page.

I tried to go with more spring like colors in general on my card. Just last week we got dumped on again w/a foot of snow!! I so want spring to get here already!! The pic below shows how many thing I actually ended up popping up on the card. I was also trying to find a sentiment. I remembered I had these cute ticket stub ones from MudMaven @ I just thought would be so cute. Well, I hope you like it and can join us for next weeks challenge. And as always - all comments are appreciated & welcomed : )
