A Day for Daisies - Ladybug Hello

Hi Everyone!
Today is my first solo DT post for the ADFD Blog.  I am super-excited to share an adorable image with you, called Ladybug Hello.  Could she be any more cute?!?

You'll notice the image in the shop is reverse of my card.  No problem!  Once I downloaded her, I just needed to flip the image on my computer so I could align her with where I wanted my circle to be cut out.  That's one great advantage of digital stamps, isn't it?!?

This is such a fun and easy card design.  All that's needed is a little lining up of the window and the image.  I used 110 lb. Recollections paper from Michaels for my card base because it makes a sturdy card.  That weight paper doesn't go through my printer, so I use a lighter cardstock for printing digis.

The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug and the patterned papers are from my scrap drawer.   I cut out my own speech bubble and doddle "stitched" around it and added three punched flowers.  The inside and outside sentiments are both from my collection of PTI stamps.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, 00, R20, BV00
Hair:  E41, 42, 23, 33, 47
Romper:  BG000, 11, 15 (some tip to tip blending to make the colors transition easier)
Ladybugs:  R20, 24, 27 & C3,5,9
Grass: almost every YG I have(!) and G 12, 24
Sky:  BG0000, 000, touch of C00, 0 & 1
Shoes:  R20, 24

You can find Ladybug Hello in the ADFD Shop HERE, along with other monthly specials and free digis.  Honestly, with all of the challenges ADFD sponsors and the free digis in the shop and on the blog, Tammy has got to be one of the most generous artists around!
