May Flowers

Can you believe its almost Mother's Day? Where has this year gone? Well, in honor of mom and all the pretty flowers I whipped up this little cutie for you using BBbugs Ladybug from Bugaboo Stamps...she is one of the 7 digis that I won last week by playing along in the Catch the Bug Challenge!

This weeks Bugaboo Stamps challenge is May flowers and Pastel colors. So I hand drew a few flowers to mimic the leaf in the image and added them around my bug.

For the layout of my card I used Lori's sketch over at Papercraft Planet...I thought it was fun and different! My papers are old from a Marcella 8x8 paper pad I picked up at Michael's a long time back...but I was really in a purple mood and the colors were pastel-ey without being too pale (yech).

I pulled out my sewing machine again, yeah me!! I need another table of some sort in my new stamp room dedicated to my sewing machine, cuttlebug, and Cricut. But I haven't figured that out yet, sigh.

The sentiment is from Stampendous!, the jumbo ric rac die is by My Favorite Things, and cardstock is Bazzill, copics are pictured below.

Challenge List:
Catch the Bug: May flowers and Pastels
Stamptacular Sunday: MUMS the word
Tuesday Throwdown: Mother's Day
The Stamping Boutique: Winged Things

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Mother's Day :)
