The little things

Hope you're staying cool, wherever you are.
Today's card features a cute image a friend sent me, so I can't supply any information about the  source of the image. It does make for a cheerful card, however. The image is colored with pencils, with a little  spica pen glitter on the ladybug's antenna. (An aside: I wasn't even sure ladybug had antenna so I just checked.  They do, but they are quite short and undramatic.)
Many of the design cues for this card came from the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge board,  where I chose the row that called for felt, critters and starts and stripes.
This card is for these challenges:
Tic Tac Toe #13 (far left row, down)
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- red, white, blue
Crafty Sentiments -- flowers
Word Art Wednesday #238 -- anything goes
Catch the Bug -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- patterned paper.

  3. What a sweet project. I like that it is red, white and blue which is more than just independence day. It fits for summer too.
