Just Buggin'

I've been using my Petite Phrases set again, and this time chose to use the cute little ladybug. I'd been wanting to try out my Long Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities, and realized they work real well with the the Long Notes from SU. The notecard was just a tad too long, so I trimmed off a little at the bottom, and punched the corners with my Corner Rounder punch. Next, I punched some black card stock with my ½ inch circle punch, and adhered them to the red layer with Tombo Mono Multi glue. I stamped and colored three ladybugs, omitting the sentiment on all of them. I used my circle Nesties for the circles and mounted them to the red and black polka dot layer with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the ladybug, and punched it out with my Word Window punch, and used a jump ring to dangle from my sheer ribbon.

Thanks for visiting!!
