Gone Buggy at Craft Your Passion!!

After a morning of doctors, nurses and radiologists for my son, he's now at school and I thought I would get my post done on time this week for CYP...
Our challenge this week is gone buggy so we'd love to see all your creations with bugs on it!! We are being sponsored this week by Bugaboo stamps and I chose to use Girl Ladybug!
I made my own design paper by stamping ladybugs on white cardstock and adding red glitter pen to the middle of all the flowers on them.. Once the card was finished I then added the little red rhinestones!! I coloured ladybug girl in with Tria markers then coloured in the dots on her dress with black glitter pen as well as her antenna's. I then added crystal effects to them so that they stood out a bit more.. I coloured her wings in with Kindyglitz. I then added some twine and some die cut flourishes with the crocheted flower with a button!!
Head on over to the CYP blog to see the other buggy creations from the DT!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
* Stampalot - Take Flight
* That Craft Place - Things with Wings
* Sweet Stampin - Things with Wings
* Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
* Jellypark - Summer Bugs
* Scrapbook Sisters - Things with Wings
