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.
If you are inspired, why not head over to The Lollipop Ladies and enter. 
I found this quote on-line:
I'm sending luck and wishes
All wrapped up in a hug
Good things should come your way
With this tiny ladybug.

Thank for viewing my sweet creation, Margaret Emoji
