Ladybug hugs

Hi there!

My second card for this week's cas-ual fridays challenge : sweet spots... and yes you're right... my third post for he day! On the roll!

I just could not resist , because I LOVE polka dots!

A quick and easy ladybug, made of 2 die cut circles and 1 smaller punched circle for the head. I stamped the antennae with a small corner flourish stamp that was only partially inked. I divided the polka dot circle in 2 for the wings.



I added some glossy accents on the polka dots of the patterned paper as well as on the sentiment that was colored with aqua markers. I also added  some pierced doodles.


This is all you need to make your own ladybug!
