Party this Way

So I'm in Melbourne and I just have to share this little card I made for my gorgeous niece Lily who has just turned 3. It's so sweet and I can't wait to give it to her!!

This card was also inspired by Pinterest, but I had to make a few of my own little changes.  I love punch art, and this is one of those cards to grab your punches and start gluing little bits!!

I used a large circle punch for the body, a 3/4" circle punch for the head, and the owl punch for the spots and eyes of the ladybug.  I have hand-cut little antennae and drawn little dots for the eyes.  I also hand-cut the strip of grass.  Usually I would use my herb scissors that are perfect for fringing, but this time I wanted to 'shape' my tufts of grass.  I have sponged Red Riding Hood ink around the body of the bug just to give it dimension.  It's so sweet!!

I have added some hand cut banners, a chipboard number 3 and made a party this way sign with a toothpick.  I also pulled out my Pool Party ink and sponged a sky/cloud background.  I love it!!

So here's what I used:

Stamps: Party this Way
Inks: Red Riding Hood, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White (textured), Real Red, Basic Black & Old Olive CS
Other: Circle Punches, Owl Punch, sponges, dimensionals, glue dots, tooth pick & scissors, stapler
Big Shot & Lattice Embossing Folder.

I told you this was cute or did I saw sweet!!
