A Lady Bug, Flowers and Embossing


This is my second post for today. 
CCC Digi Challenge has a new challenge up - Flowers and Embossing.

 I used an image from our sponsors, Bugaboo, and painted it with Twinkling H2O's.

This was mounted on a red base, and then over an embossed white panel.

The sentiment was heat embossed one white card, and also mounted over  red, and tucked next to the floral panel.

The final detail was the ribbon, and although it was one sided I managed to get the spots showing on all the exposed (important) sides!

I enjoyed making this card and am pleased with the outcome.

    This card is a winner in so many ways. The vibrant color, the embossing, wet and dry, the fun sweet image they are all first class. Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday.

  12. This is such a cute and pretty card. Great coloring and embossing...
    Yes, Maxine, tomorrow you can send me some of your cool weather. It's supposed to be Hot and Humid my way. You may keep the snow though...smile, We had more than enough of that this past winter.

  13. What a beauty! Loving the colors- the pop of red and the shimmer is awesome! Love the way you added your sentiment in Gold too : )

  14. Gorgeous card Maxine love the heat embossed sentiment, embossing and beautiful flower. Spotty ribbon and bow are an asset to this card. I too love H2O's but gosh at times I just don't know what I want to use...too many things I think in my craft room stash...

  19. Hi Maxine, what a delightfully cheerful card! I love the image and I think the Twinkling H2Os add a marvelous and subtle shimmer. I love polka dots a lot and so your embossing and the ribbon made me smile. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Opus Gluei, how fun it is to see where our themes take participants!
