Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #17

I am so excited to be part of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team!  Thank you so much, Robin, for offering me this position.  This is my first official submission as a member of the team.
This week, our challenge is creepy crawlers with a bit orange.  I actually like insects, with the exception of earwigs.  Fortunately, there are no earwig cuts on any Cricut cartridges!
The little ladybirds (ladybugs) on my card were cut from Walk in My Garden at 1".  I cut 12 of them in pink (one for the inside of the card) and 1 in orange.  The back layer is green and the shadows are all blue.  I heat embossed the orange ladybird to make her stand out even more.  I cut a heart from George and Basic Shapes after manipulating it in Design Studio to get just the right dimensions.  The patterned paper used for the background is Cosmo Cricket and everything else is regular cardstock from my stash.  I also used some cotton "ribbon".  The little flowers on the inside of the card were made with a punch.  The ivory border has a computer generated sentiment.  I also used some Cuttlebug border folders for the straight lines as well as the embossed flowers on the ivory border.  A Stampin' Up border punch was used for the card's inside as well.
I hope you can join us at FCCB this week!  I'd love to see what you create!

(I will also enter this card at The Cuttlebug Challenge blog, where easel cards are the theme of the week.)
