Little Ladybug ~ SAB Host Freebie ~ International Winners Blog Hop

Hello lovely blog reader and welcome to my blog.
You are visiting Kayla's blog from Tasmania Australia. 
I am so lucky to be participating in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Winner's blog hop.
A big thank you so much to everybody that voted for my card in the highlights reel.

Today our theme was 'encouragement' and I just thought of this gorgeous little ladybug set. 
It was the sentiment that really inspired me with "Spread Your Wings and Fly"
If that is not encouragement, I don't know what is. I just love it!

This card was really inspired from the Sale-a-Bration brochure which I cannot show you yet (will be live on the 4th of January)
however I added some 'Kayla' touches and made it me.

I hope that you enjoy...

Here is a look at the finished card. 
I just loved the look of repeatedly stamping those little ladybugs tone on tone (with Pool Party) in the background. It makes such a quick, easy and fun background you can make in a flash. 
It really is one of my favourite techniques!

Something else cool about this card?
The purple Designer Series Paper you can see, you can earn FREE in SAB and the Ladybug stamp set can also be earned FREE! I love Sale-a-Bration - it's one of my favourite times of year!

I used my trust Stampin' Blends to colour all my ladybug elements. 
I have listed the colours I have used below at the bottom of the post.

I used a Stitched Shape in a circle to ground all my elements, and stamped my beautiful sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on this circle before adhering to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I also cut a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock and used some fringe scissors to cut what looks like grass.
You can also do this with ordinary paper snips, just making sure you don't cut right to the top, so you have something to hold the strip together.

I have then embellished with some Glitter Enamel Dots in Lovely Lipstick, some Linen Thread and a gorgeous felt scalloped piece from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. I just love these!

Finally I decorated the inside of my card and kept it really simple, stamping another flower and adding an extra lady bug.
I chose not to add a stamped sentiment to the inside, so that I could make the theme of this card based upon who I choose to send it to.

I hope you enjoyed this post today and got some inspiration.

Be sure to hop along to all the other blog and check out the amazing work.

Crafty hugs! xx
