Guest Designer - The Lollipop Ladies
Card designed by Margaret Crawford (c)
I was excited to win a guest designer spot with The Lollipop Ladies recently and I was asked to submit for Challenge #70. The challenge is Bug Lollipops with the extra challenge of Nature.
I was immediately attracted to the Lady Bug in the inspiration photo below.
I used Elizabeth craft designs die 711 - Lady Bugs in black and red. The resulting bug is very small and I was perplexed as to how I would adhere the wings to the body - but a Quickie Glue pen came to the rescue. The nature paper came from the Kaisercraft - Great Southern Land Collection. The greeting is Stampin' Up! (r) from a long retired set, the words just seemed right for this card. And finally I used dimensional pops to raise the greeting and the bugs to give them the appearance of flying across the card.
