Ladybug Hugs

I made this card for a very dear friend of mine.  As soon as I saw the sentiment stamp at Deedee's Digis, I knew I had to use it to make a card for Elsa. 
The sentiment comes as part of a set, and my original plan was to use the main image of the set for the front of the card and put the sentiment inside.  Well, after four attempts at colouring, I admitted defeat and went to plan B!!  I did have success at colouring the little ladybug though, so added some glitter to her and included her on the card.
The papers I used are from DCWV and the cardstock is from Recollections.  I used my heart folder to emboss the cardstock behind the sentiment.  There are two eyelets through which I strung the cord.  Some elements of the card are also popped.  I created this card with this week's sketch at Crafting with Deedee's Digis in mind and will enter it in that challenge.
On a completely different note altogether, we have a new addition to the family!!  Electra (named after the character my daughter played in this year's school production) joined us on Wednesday evening.  She's eight and a half weeks old and is TINY!!  She is the friendliest cat I have met in my life and she's already won us all over.  Here's a photo of Electra with my oldest and youngest.
