My Life Is So Much Better With You In It

Happy Monday and happy August 1st, everyone! I hope your week is starting out great! I did manage to get some rest last night so I'm feeling much better. I have a card to enter into a few challenges today :)
For this card, I used Nursery Rhymes to cut the cute little ladybugs. I love the cuts on this cart, but they don't have any layers besides the shadow. I cut the same image four times and just cut off the parts I wanted in different colors. You can't tell in the pic, but I cut the wings twice and adhered the top layer with foam to give some dimension, and the I adhered the ladybugs with foam as well.

  • Core Couture - red background paper
  • K & Company Que Sera Sera- patterned paper
  • Nursery Rhymes Cartridge - ladybugs at 3"
  • Heritage Cartridge - the frames for the sentiment
  • K Andrew's Positive Thoughts Stamps (click HERE to purchase your own set!)
  • EK Success Punch
  • Foam Tape 
  • iRock
  • Fiskars Corner Punch
  • Hobby Lobby Ribbon
I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful week :D

Hey again!

I'm glad your feeling rested Lisa, I am still trying to get back to normal after this past weekend. On Sunday I slept pretty much the whole day, and night, then Monday I still felt wiped out. I'm a light weight I guess!

This card is so precious! I really like how you cut the wings. Oh, I loved your flamingo invitation too, very summery! Hope everything is getting back to normal for you!
