Red and Blue, a new card for You!

Happy Tuesday,
Last week I won a challenge at Penny's Challenges and my prize was $15 to spend at Busy Beauties on digital stamps and I just couldn't resist the little cutie I chose for today's card.
Then the owner of the store pointed me in the direction of her challenge blog and so it was the perfect time to try out my new image!

Card Recipe:
Image - Sweet Ladybug by Busy Beauties
Paper - DCWV The Summer Stack 2009
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Cloud Nine for Fiskars
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug Flower Circles

Ladybug button - Dress it Up
Shine - Glossy Accents (on her hat, shoes and shell)

Ribbon - Hobby Lobby

I love how the easel card stands.

I hope the photo shows the shiny parts, the are so cool in real life.
I thought this little girl looked like she was about to do a recital and so I used an encouragement sentiment.

This was such a fun card to make and I hope you like it too.
