Ladybug or ladybeetle?!

Hi everyone, stopped being busy for a while and sat down to make this card this morning.

I was inspired by this pic at Scrapbook Boutique
Enter Our Challenge - starts 10th each month
Such fun cupcakes! They reminded me of this bloom dots embossing folder.

I'm also linking up to A Blog Named Hero where it's
I thought this would be cute for a budding gardener, (as long as they weren't tempted to taste the ladybugs!)
I used the tiny ladybug stamp in the antique engravings stamp set and fussy cut it.
While I was poking the flowers with a shaper, I also did the back of the beetles.
The glossy accents make them look more like beetle wings!

Lots of snippets for the bits of greenery and the 1"circle dots, so I'm visiting the playground at
Pixies Crafty Workshop

Hero Arts antique engravings stamp; versafine & clear ep; tombow markers; glossy accents; Impression Obsession leafy branch die; Fiskars circle & flower punch; bloom dots embossing folder; foam tape; sentiment sticker. 

Thanks for visiting, hope you have a great week,
