I just love PaperTreys Little Lady stamp set but being an SU demo, imagine my excitement when I saw that you could create a ladybug from the new set Pick a Petal!! I first spotted the idea on SCS and knew I would be trying it myself. I chose to use some of the new colors, purely pomegranate and sky blue. The wings are made using the polka dot petal in pp and then one of the outline stamps in black. It reads "smile" on the side of the outline. The head is a 3/4" circle punch of black card stock that is trimmed just a bit larger than half. The black body is a 1 1/4" circle punch of black. I did lift up the wings with dimensionals as well. I stamped the sky blue panel with the Polka Dot background from CHF but I hear the new SU catty may have a polka dot background of its own. I didn't feel like hand drawing all the antennae and trails so I used stamps from the PaperTrey set for that. The whole card is mounted onto black card stock. This one just makes me happy!!
