Hugs and Kisses

Hello, ladies!
How are you? Good, I hope.
I'm in an especially good mood tonight because
I had a little extra time to get crafty this weekend.
Would you like to see what I made?

I started by trimming down this sweet
leafy print by Making Memories.
The back side was covered in these adorable
ladybugs, so I trimmed out three in various sizes.

I tied on a length of ribbon from
the Girl's Paperie (isn't it pretty?)
and added a button from my stash.

I then matted my leafy print with a
pink vine print from My Mind's Eye,
and adhered the entire thing to
some pink Bazzill cardstock
folded into a standard-sized card.

I put together my sentiment from
The Paper Studio's mix and match sentiments
set (I would have liked to close the bottom of
the "h" so it would read "bugs & kisses"
but I didn't have the right color pen)
and stamped it with 
Watermelon Ink It Up ink.

And all that was left to do was to pop off
the little ladybugs with dimensional adhesive.
Pretty quick and easy, but I really love
how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
