Lucky to have You...Cute as a bug!

I'm up today on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog with a wee bit of Irish inspiration on this St. Patrick's Day!

For the month of March, the Design Team is creating with the colors of green, yellow and brown along with animals including bugs and pets.  And since today is St. Patrick's Day, what could be more Irish than shamrocks?  My "Lucky to have You!" card inspiration also includes lucky four leaf clovers and cute little ladybugs, which are also a symbol of luck.

"Lucky to have You!"

The background on this 6"x 6" card was made using a piece of green specialty paper cut into 4 blocks and matted with a black card base.  I placed 4 smaller cut doilies in the center of each block.  A white doily is layered between two patterned paper doilies and placed in the center of the blocks using pop dots for dimension.  I printed the sentiment and used the smallest doily to cut it out.  I tucked in green shamrocks and four leaf clovers edged with gold glitter randomly around the doilies.  The red velvet heart was cut using the shamrock die and added over the green leaf.  The lady bugs added more good luck to the card theme.  I placed the green bow with checked ribbon tails and a few green leaves in the lower right corner.  A  lady bug and "cute as a bug" tag complete this fun card.

"Cute as a bug!"

This lady bug is nesting comfortably on top of the yummy bow created with my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  It's always nearby in my crafting space!  It makes creating bows so easy. Click on the tab at the top of the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and order one for yourself.  You'll be so happy you did!
