StampFairy Challenge - Lucky Ladybug

Hi There! I hope that you have all enjoyed the weekend.  It is Monday and the start of another new week which brings us the start of another new StampFairy Challenge.
For our challenge this week Gerda has designed another wonderful sketch

I will admit that I struggled with this challenge for a bit trying to decide what I was going to do. There were a few ideas rolling around in my head but I settled on using Lenny Ladybug and I do love the end result.

The designer paper on my card is something from the very first paper stack I ever bought when I started scrapbooking over 10 years ago. In keeping with the ladybug theme, I have run it through my Swiss Dots embossing folder and then lightly ran a black ink pad over the raised texture to enhance it. The little ladybugs that I have used for embellishments are a freebie from StampFairy that can be found here. I wanted to use a Good Luck sentiment but I had to settle for Best Wishes as that is what I had that would fit.

In preparation for Father's Day, Gerda has created an adorable set of images and a set of matching sentiments that are being released today.

I hope that you will join us for this weeks challenge. I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

I will be entering this card in the following challenge:

Carissa, I love your card, the colouring is just perfect and I love the bright red colours. I tend to go for pastels far too much, and then when I made a red card for the Donny Ladybug release a few weeks ago I loved it. I love that ribbon you've used. Adorable. Annette xx
