Teapot Tuesday Challenge-Lara the Ladybug

Welcome to my Teapot Tuesday Challenge Card. I know, I know, we were to bring the some birds and some bees and at least three daisies but no trees. Well what garden wouldn't be complete without a Ladybug.
Ladybugs are good luck. In fact the folk lore in France about lady bugs is if one lands on your hand, when it flies away it will take your illness. So with these two things in mind, I am sending my card to the destination station in Canada to a retired lady who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. She loves birds and is surrounded by a beautiful back yard filled with trees, birds, flowers and critter-----so see she needs a ladybug!

About my card. This image is from Digital Delights. I am their Guest Designer today. I won a challenge for one of my cards last week and was asked to be their guest. I use Lara-she is fancy cut and layer three times. I placed crystal effects on her. I made the daisies and used yellow flock for the center and attached little lady bugs on three of the flowers.
You can see them better in this picture. I also repurposed and altered a Bumble Bee Sensational Tuna container to place some candy in.

This is an easel card

This is the sentiment I wrote on the inside. Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate it and your wonderful comments.

Carol, it is always a treat to come to your blog and check out the beautiful cards you have made. The ladybug may be the only insect I'm not afraid of...oh, I'm not afraid of the butterfly either. What a great card to send someone who is surely needing some cheering.
