From the Heart Progressive Challenge and I Heart Sketches # 25

I love the first week of month!!

I can combine 

Here is this week's sketch...

I used the image 
"Painting Ladybug"
which I received for free for taking part in last month's 
Progressive Challenge.
If you didn't take part....
no fear.  
You can purchase this month's image and 
next month you will receive the next free image!!

Here is my card.....
The card is a 6" x 6" square.
The paper is from
"Me & My Big Ideas" Pad.
I used the We R Memories Envelope Punch Board
and the same paper to make the envelope. 
The paper is cut to 9.5" x 9.5"
and scored at 4 3/4".

I colored the image with 
100, E25, FRV1, YG 25 and R29
and a Gold Gel Pen.

I used Spellbinders' Star Circles as the border to the image.
I used my Perfect Layers' Rules to cut the border around the sentiment,
which came with the image.

The little ladybugs were cut on my Cricut...sorry don't recall who's file.
I had cut them sometime ago.  
All the ladybugs have a coat of Glossy Accents to give their shells some shine.  

Under the image, going across the card, 
is Chestnut and White American Craft Glitter Tape.

Thanks for stopping by...
May your worries be few,
and your Crafting Days long.


  1. WOW!!! Chris this is gorgeous!! Love the die cut, and the added ladybugs!!! Great matching Envelope too!!!

  2. I wondered how you did those little lady bugs, or if they were purchased embellies - what a great idea - and so carefully assembled! Darling card, Miss Chris. My favorite part is how the lady bug is painting the flower to match her ensemble. LOL Of course, the glitter looks fabulous! hugs, de
