Ladybug Mine

I know that every time I show a Magnolia I gush about how adorable they are . . . this one has my heart.  These are sure favorites with some of the little girls in my life (you know who you are *wink*).   I love to keep a stash of these around for my special little ladies and try to make up gift boxes or baskets to go with them as well.  This one is #346 Tilda with Ladybug.  In the depths of my studio I knew I had these wooden ladybugs and I thought they would go perfectly with the card.   I have been dying to use this Spellbinders On the Vine Borderabilities Grand with all the vines and curlicues – it is sure to become one I use often.  When I looked at the Mojo Monday Sketch one thing fell into place after the other.

To make the card I cut all my circles with Spellbinders Standard Large Circles and Spellbinders Standard Small Circles.  After intertwining the vine with the hollowed out circle and threading the sentiment through, I added the wooden lady bugs and pearls.  To make the box I followed this sweet tutorial from the Scor-Pal library, this specific project can be found HERE.  Once I know the recipient I’ll add coloring cards and a bundle of new crayola crayons tied with a bow :).

Project Recipes:

Stamps:  Magnolia from Magnolia-licous – #387 Tilda with Ladybug, Magnolia Sentiment
Paper:  Bazzill, DP from my stash
Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories:  Spellbinders On the Vine Borderabilities Grand, Spellbinders Standard Large Circles, Spellbinders Standard Small Circles, Wooden Lady Bugs,  Pearls, Martha Stewart Lattice Arch Border Punch, EK Success Scalloped Scallop Border Punch

Its a busy week, hope to see you later!
