Lady Bug Luck

In Germany, Lady Bugs are a symbol of Good Luck and since I'm not Irish, I thought the Lady Bugs more appropriate for this month.  The Lady Bugs are from Stampin Up's Darling Dots set and done with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Firecracker Red Embossing Powder, dotted with some no name black glitter.  The HB sentiment is from Sparkle N Sprinkle's birthday stamp set #416   and is embossed with SNS Ice Rink. The cardstock colors are Bashful Blue, Gumball Green and Green Galore.  The background leaves are cut with my Silhouette.  Someday I hope to be able to figure out how to use the print and cut feature!

  5. This is so cute and the ladybugs are darling. Love the leaves in the background too. I've always heard that ladybugs are lucky too - so hoping they bring you lots of good luck.

  6. Great idea with those fun ladybugs on the leaf background. Super cute!

  7. Gerlinde, this is a super sweet card! Love ladybugs - they are a necessity down here, and I heartily "cultivate" their colonies. Not sure what we would do without them. When I get an electronic cutter, I'd like to get a silhouette, too. Does it cut SVG files also? Lovely spring card, my friend. (are your parents feeling better? it's been a few weeks since we last spoke) hugs, de
