In the garden

Morning all, well the photo session was a complete disaster!  Jake would not sit there for the photo, he just sreamed the whole time and kept getting down.  We tried 4 times after letting him calm down each time but my little darling knows what he doesn't want!  So we will just have the one of Theo on his own that was taken earlier in the day.  Hope he wasn't making faces too! 

Anyway onto today's card

The black and white spotted paper is another Pink petticoat paper, and the red is just embossed with a dotty embossing folder.  The ribbon is attatched to a piece of black card that I have used my trusty Fiskars lace boarder punch on.

The Digi image is from Digi doodle shops best called 'ladybug' isn't it cute?  I have coloured it with pro markers and cut it out with nesties dies, and inked the white one with red ink.

The sentiment is a Lili of the valley stamp set and have punched it out then inked it with red.

The cute ladybirds at the bottom are a small sizzix die .

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
