Little ladybird!

Morning Folks!
I do hope this cute little face brightens your day,
it's my DT card for the new challenge at Lexi's Creations which is


Obviously I've gone down the spotty route using Baby Ladybug from Fairy Dust Crafts who are also our sponsors this time! I printed the image on to white, red and cream card, then paper pieced the red shell. The face has been cut out of the cream image and has foam pads on the back to add depth. The shell has been covered with glossy accents to make it nice and shiny. It's a bit hard to see in the photo but the image is mounted onto shiny black card and then a white piece of card that has been embossed with a 'Seeing spots' cuttlebug folder. Double mounted and finished with a ribbon and a few gems in the corners.
