Lady bug, Lady bug, fly away home.......

Just playing around today and decided it was time to color up a 'scene-it' freebie that I picked up from Bugaboo last month.  The lady bugs are cute but the flower in this scene is gorgeous!  So many ways to play with this image.  I chose to print and color it twice.  I cut out the ladybugs and the large flower from the second printing and pop-dotted them onto the original.  Lots of dimension!  Some decorative corners, a ribbon, a perfect sentiment from Create with TLC and I had the perfect card.  This one is going to a friend's daughter for her birthday.  Her nickname is 'Ladybug'.   Perfect!

Isn't it too cute!  What a great scene.  Makes for an easy and quick card.  Especially for those of us that love to color.  I have used my copics (*gasp* imagine that).  The decorative corners are from Spellbinders and the ribbon from Michael's.  A little glitter and some glossy accents and it was done.
