Have you ever seen a purple ladybug? I have. One of the little girls at church has a purple ladybug pillow pet that she dearly loves. We were on a road trip together last summer and she had to have her ladybug to cuddle with on the trip. I made note of it so I could do something special just for her on her birthday card. Well, her birthday is next week so I had to get started.
I had saved a blogpost by Debbie Henderson that showed a punch art ladybug. It is really very simple.
It did turn out cute, didn't it ? I hope she likes it.
The card uses some retired DSP with Certainly Celery leaves and flowers. Where else would you find a ladybug? I used the polka dot Elegant Eggplant DSP for the ladybug body and the scallop around the sentiment. The rhinestones were colored with a black permanent marker but for some reason they looked like a dark purple. Worked for me.
And while I was playing I used some of my new toys from Sale-a-bration and the Spring Catalog.

I want to try this with primary colors to see how that will look. I like this color combo but not sure it is the best for this technique.
