Thinking Of You Card ~ Missing You

Hello crafty friends. I hope your weekend is a wonderful one so far.
I once again painted over my embossed image.
I like how the leaves pop from the blue background once they are painted.
I made my little ladybug using a few MCT dies and a punch.
First, for his body, I cut large circles in black and red.
Next I punched black circles and add them to the red circle.
Then I cut the dotty red circle in half and added the wings to the black one.
For its head I die cut a button, backed it with white and added eyeballs.
I love the stitching and the button holes worked perfectly for his eyes.

*Ladybug wings created using cuts from the Scallop & Stitched Circle Die from My Creative Time.
*Ladybug head created using a cut from the Stitched Button Dies from My Creative Time.
*Spots cut using a circle punch from Marvy Uchida.
*Sentiment from the It's All About You stamp set from My Creative Time.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Leafy Branch folder.
*Painted using watered down CTMH Olive ink {reinker}.
*Ribbon from Celebrate It.
*CTMH Olive stamps pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
