Ladybug Birthday Card For The Cooking With Cricut Challenge

The "Ladybug hugs!" stamp is from Mary at CardzTV.

I made this card for my niece's 2nd birthday next month.  Her mom is doing a Ladybug theme, which will be SUPER CUTE.  I'm really looking forward to her party.  It will be a lot of fun.

I got the ladybug cut off from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge.  I welded the ladybug together at 6" on my Gypsy.  I cut out another 6" black ladybug and glued it to the front and pieced the rest of the front of the card like normal.  I did remove the eyes and smile from the face on the cut so I could draw on the cute face myself.  I just used a crayola crayon to color in the cheeks as I don't have any chalk at the moment.  This works pretty good though if you ask me....the crayon cheeks look sweet.  :o)  The cupcake was just from a 50 cent stamp set that I got on clearance from Joann's after Valentine's day.  I colored the cupcake with my gel and glitter pens.  I used Stickles on the herat and antenae.  I LOVE this cute little ladybug card and I know that my niece will love it too.
