Totally Ladybug Tuesday

It's Tuesday and Guess what? I'm now officially a "Ladybug" Yay!!!! There I was last Tuesday,all glum cos it was my last post as guest designer when Kerry,Queen Ladybug herself practically begged me to stay,well maybe not beg but I was thrilled to be asked and the Ladybugs are such a fun,friendly group of girlies!
So anyway,on to today's card. It's Sue's challenge this week and a very apt one as it was her birthday at the weekend. The challenge is "Summer Birthdays"

Here's the card I made for Sue using Winestool Nikki,I don't think Sue has a dog so decided to stamp Nikki minus her poodle.

The flower is made using a large Sizzix Die and the flourish is Quickutz Revolution. The Sentiment was part of  the free set of Ladybug stamps from the recent Cards and Papercraft Magazine.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

Craft Your Passion 65,Anything goes,
DDH9,Hand made flowers,
Simon Says Stamp, and show a flourish,
Dream Valley 10,Use Ribbon,
Sentimental Sundays 62,Anything goes,
2 Sisters 46,Birthday,
Catch The Bug,Anything goes.
Hope you join us in this week's challenge.
Thanks for stopping by,
