For Cas(e) this sketch

Hello lovely bloggers,

Here is my card for Cas(e) this sketch - sorry that I have not linked the sketch. The lady bugs were stamped horizontally with one of Aleeza's stamps that she hardly uses. I have used water colours to colour the lady bugs after stamping them with Stazon jet black. The striped paper and buttons are from my stash. The Penny Black sentiment has been stamped with American Craft white ink. The buttons were used to cover smudges from the stamp. I could have stuck tiny butterflies but I had buttons lying close by on the table so I went for them. Lol.

 I will also enter this card in: 

This card below is the one I posted for the last Less is More challenge. I added multicoloured strings at the bottom to make it look more attractive. I think it looks better with the strings, doesn't it?

Hello Monica dear, what lovely cards you've created. The ladybugs are delightful and the buttons add that fun style. I like the colored strings at the bottom of the other card - it adds a bit of flair to it. You're so creative - what a great way to use eyelets! Your trip to the mountains looked like a lot of fun! Great photos, by the way (especially that hungry hippo!) :-)

I love your ladybirds. The colours are very dramatic. I like both of your abstract flowers but the coloured string does add an extra dimension
