Stop and Smell the Flowers

Yay it's the weekend, I'm so happy. Today it's time for another new challenge at Sweet Stampin Challenge and the theme for this week is NATURE and BUGS and BEES and LADYBUGS!

I thought this adorable image from Some Odd Girl would be perfect for this theme, and there I also had what I needed.. a fun little ladybug peeping down from behind the flower :D

Today I coloured my image with promarkers, used a gorgeous paper from Kate Knight's the Spring Fling paper pad, which was a free gift in the magazine Cardmaking and Papercraft...

and finished it off with two butterflies, a dragonfly, ribbon and a bunch of gorgeous mulberry paper flowers.

All these flowers, the purple rosebuds, the pink tiger lilies, the purple chrysanthemum, the yellow curly roses and the leaves, are from Hooked on Craft... just gorgeous I think and so beautiful. 

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Emma's Store with this lovely prize for the lucky winner.

And these are my challenges for my card.
