Ladybug for the Queen

I made this card to honor QFTD25 on Splitcoaststampers. It is Phyllis aka sparkleplenty1000. She makes fabulous cards and is on the design team at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. I had no problem finding a card to case. I went a bit overboard as I was going to do something mostly white and delicate...well, you know...the best laid plans of mice and men. LOL

I also entered my card into the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. My inspiration was a ladybug potholder from Elizabeth's Embellishments here:

I am joining in the challege at The Paper Players found here: It is an "Anything Goes" challenge #13. That is always easy peasy.

Stamps: Ladybugs and Carnations from Mark's Finest Papers
Paper: Best Occasions Mixed Media from frame die cut, SU Real Red cs, black cs
Martha Stewart ladybug punch around the page, Martha Stewart double loop edge punch
Brads from Hobby Lobby
sheer ribbon

Off to the first football game of the season to see my National Championship team, the University of Alabama, play. Roll Tide!!!!

That ladybug punch is too cute! Lovely use of the other one on the red too. Fabulous work :) I'm almost back into the land of the living after being away - took a long time to catch up on blogs and e-mails!
