Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday #63/ Ways To Use It Challenge #235

This is my card for today's Ways To Use It Challenge (Using Red):

I did not use ALOT of red, just a tiny friendly ladybug saying "hi".

This card is also for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge (post #153):

I originally designed this card for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday this week. I am just arriving. Fashionably late, as they say. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Fashionalby, in my case. Hee. (My asthma is giving me trouble for 3 weeks now and thus the slooooooooooooooowness). I have meds now though. So hopefully my speed will pick up with my energy. That is the plan.

Like I was saying this card was meant for MMTPT inspired by her ladybug teapot. When I saw today's challenge, I thought "it has RED on it", so even though it is a small bit of red, it is still red and pops on my (handmade) daisy. Right?!

WHAT I DID: I first cut out the largest circle using my coluzzle and drew my daisy template which I traced onto my white textured paper. I then scored and folded the petals down the center for dimension. I cut out another same sized circle from Tempting Turquoise CS from my 4 3/4 square card. It looked like it needed something, so I added sponging and stitching.

The ladybug, I stamped onto the yellow textured paper then stamped two more times on white textured paper. I colored him red, cut him out and popped him up on the flower center. I then colored and cut out just the head and popped it up on top for dimension. Finished off with dimensional glaze on the ladybug only.

Thank you for visiting me!
