Totally Tuesday ladybug challenge

Good Morning everyone! Another rainy overcast day in Pennsylvania but spring is coming! I saw daffodils poking their leaves up the other day and this weekend we get to set the clocks ahead so a little extra daylight will be very welcome. This week at the totally tuesday ladybug challenge is all about spring. I have to admit, I am layout challenged and normally use a sketch for every card I make but I hated to cover up the paper on this card and not having a sketch really thru me for a loop. I was putting on ribbon and taking it off then trying different sized flowers, moving them around. Just couldn't get happy with this card so I put on some bling and called it a day. Bling makes everything better right!
So now it is your turn to think spring and head on over to http://ladybugscraftsinkchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ and place your entry with a spring theme. And guess what? Now you can use any image to win the great prize of a free ladybug stamp! So play along and start building your collection up!
