Little Ladybug ~ Happy Birthday Card

Hello and welcome back to my little blog. 
I can't believe it is March already! Here in Australia we have now hit Autumn, and if I do say so myself, I can already feel the cooler air.
In saying that, I do live in the cold part of Australia...down on the little island of Tasmania.

Today I wanted to come and share something pretty awesome with you and that is the super fantabulous (we are making that a word...haha!) LITTLE LADYBUG stamp set.
Did you know that you can get this FREE at the moment? And it ends THIS MONTH!

Read down towards the bottom of the post to see how you can get your stamp set free.

Something even more fun, is that with the release of the special Sale-a-Bration coordination release this month, which continues into this month - you can also get coordinating dies - which I have used on today's card.

I hope you enjoy today's post and be sure to scroll to the bottom to see how you can get yours and find all the products I have used today, all of which you can purchase in my store.

Here's a look at the completed card.
I was really inspired by colour on this fun card and I have used the combination below. Coastal Cabana is just my absolutely FAVOURITE, I think I could combine it with anything!

I have coloured a couple of my favourite images from the stamp set and coloured them with a mixture of; Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend Combos.

Here you can see a close up of the finished card.
I decided to make this card a birthday card, since I actually believe it or not, have a desperate shortage. My go to card to make it thank you cards!

You can see the simplicity of the card here.

My layer of Lovely Lipstick in the background I have embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and then added a Stitched Rectangle Die on the top, cut with our fabulous Stitched Rectangle Dies. 

In this close up, you can see that I have actually die cut and coloured that fun flower twice and raised the top flower up on Stampin' Dimensionals for a bit of extra dimension. 
I love that in the die set, it comes with dies to cut the entire flower, but also a die just to cut the flower without the stem! So many possibilities. 

I have also added a fun 'swirly' ladybug trail so that you can see the ladybug flying.

Lastly I have kept the embellishing to a minimum, just adding some Linen Thread and some Basic Rhinestones. 

I have decorated the inside with some simple layers of Whisper White and Coastal Cabana and added a couple of dies cut in Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green with a fun Basic Rhinestone.

I hope you enjoyed that look at the card created today.
