Even though Mother Nature played an April Fools joke by sending me snow yesterday morning, I'm choosing to remain cheerful by posting this summer like birthday card. I know lady bug time can't be too far in the future, so I inked up the Ladybug Birthday Greeting and made it the focus of my card. By cutting it out with my circle dies, I was able to layer it up to match the color theme of my card. DRS Designs has lots of great card edgers, and this Ladybug (which comes paired with a butterfly edge) worked perfectly down the side of my card. I simply stamped and colored it up with my Copic markers and added a punched border.

The Easy Dot Background made making the background paper so simple and matched the theme of the card so well. I finished it off by adding some resin ladybugs that have been in my crafty stash forever :)
Just to add a personal bit, I succommed to the awful flu/cold/virus whatever thing that seems to have many people sick. Last week was rough, sleep was scarce and with 18 coming for Easter dinner, I wasn't sure I was going to make it. I managed to survive, and went to the doctor yesterday (for the second time...long story), and I'm hoping with these meds I will be back to feeling better.
