Lucky Ladybug

I want to thank all of you who participated in my Birthday Blog Candy, especially all my new followers...I am almost at 200!!!!I have met so many blogger friends in the past two years:) Thanks for your words of encouragement and for visiting often. 

We have a great summer fun digi stamp kit to show off to you today.  It's called Summer Cuties stamps by Lil Ellaboudy Design.
Our theme for Challenge #131 is Bright Summer Colors!

So many wonderful choices. It was so difficult to decide! 
I know that a ladybug is a symbol of good luck and I made this shape card for a former student who just moved to a new state for her first career job. I know that she will appreciate receiving mail:)

I used tiny glass beads to add texture to the ladybug's spots.
The sentiment pulls from the bottom.
A close up of the sentiment.

Materials Used:
CS: Michael's
Microbeads: Recollections-Michael's
