Hi There! BC #48

Sorry it's a day late, but here's my card for Blogger's Challenge #48. I just returned from a day and a half Retreat for our management team at work. We had such a great time and it was really productive but man is it exhausting preparing for and putting it on. Can't wait to sleep in tomorrow.

Our challenge this week was to create a card with red, white and blue.

I took a little liberty with a ladybug's God given color scheme, but ladybugs are one of nature's most whimsical creatures, right? This cute little bug is called Ladybug with Smile by Global Solutions. I stamped her three times and colored her with Copics and added a bit of shimmer to her wings with a clear Spica pen. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

I cut out a small section from KI Memories Flower Child paper and used it as an overlay to my Chatterbox PP. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.

Well, I'm off to visit the other challenge participants' creations. You can check them out too by clicking on the "Blogger's Challenge" logo on the right sidebar.

Have a safe and meaningful Memorial Day!
