Ladybugs

I am loving playing with the Magnolia Spring kit - now that I have eventually found some time to play lol. I have used the sketch on Friday Sketchers, another brilliant sketch that I will use again and again.

I discovered these delish papers when trawling through my digi-downloads and think they are perfect for little Tilda and her ladybug. So I went a little ladybug crazy - ladybugs on the paper, ladybug on the image and ....

even more ladybugs inside lol. I really had fun making this card.
