Challenges :
ABC - R ... Ribbon
CRAFT - Animals
Less Is More - Sentiment
Make It Monday - Anything
Mami Doodles - Punch / Die Cut
Papertake - Anything
Squigglefly - Only Words

Elements :
Sentiment - TLC Creations

Ribbon - stash

Oooooops, I got a very nice ticking off from Mandi at Less is More - and rightly so!  I wish I'd read what's on the page and not what I think it should be then I'd get things correct!  The challenge was not only to use a Sentiment but also it was to be One Layer only.  When I read the comment I popped back to the craft room and did a card that goes by the rules!

Well I do love a ladybug and this is such a great sentiment. It deserves to be a feature doesn't it. Fabulous card and I love that cute little critter in the corner too. Lx

Mandi said...

This is a suepr card, but our One Layer rule is that you stamp or print directly onto the card surface, that being the one layer.
you could follow Chrissie's instruction, she has created a similar effect just by stamping onto her card
Thank you Anne, see you agin

Very very cute bug and loving your sentiment. I do get easily bugged by small things so if you don't mind i might write this down and ponder for a moment... :-)
