I made this card for challenge #59 at the Stampin B's Challenge Blog. The challenge was to make a long card with three circles on it. I had fun with this one, as I've only ever made a handful of long cards. The ladybug stamp is from the recently released "Ladybugs and Carnation" stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers. It works beautifully with the Martha Stewart ladybug edge and corner punches. I stamped the ladybug three times, colored them with Copics, then cut them out with a circle punch. I added glossy accents on the shells of the ladybugs, but it doesn't show up well in the photo. I added a green and white gingham ribbon for contrast to complete the card. The stamp set, papers, and ribbon are all available at Mark's Finest Papers.
