MMSC#48 It's a Bird, It's a Plane, No It's a Lady Bug


It's time again for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. With the sketch this week, I thought it was perfect for me to pull out my Martha Stewart Lady Bug punches. This was so much fun!!!The Lady Bug Tilda was so much fun to color. The red shading behind the image was achieved with red chalk. The lady bug buttons are from "All Dressed Up". The corner treatments are a sizzx die. The little red flowers are from the Micheal's dollar bin. I also embossed with the basket weave cuttlebug folder.
This is the inside of the card. Those lady bugs are made from another Martha Stewart punch. I punched one time on red card stock and one time with black. I cut the head off the black and glued it on top of the red. Then I cut a body to place under the red wings. I pop-dotted them for dimension. My envelope is made from a 6 x 6 Priscillastyles Kit found here.
