Ladybug Marci - The Ribbon Girl Anything Goes - Any Image May Challenge

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?
Today see's another new challenge over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog.
Our challenge for the next 2 weeks is.............ANYTHING GOES - USE ANY IMAGE
Once again there are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs! 
More details can be found at the end of this post.

I have made a card featuring La La Land Ladybug Marci.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra cardstock and I have fussy cut around her.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly # 5 and Maja design 'Sofiero' and 'Shades of Sofiero' 6 x 6 paper stacks.
Other dies used areMarianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, Spellbinders heart lattice, Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag and Prima forest leaves.
I have inked the die cuts using Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
The gorgeous resin wings were a gift from my very special bloggy friend.

Here is a list of the gorgeous products that I have used on my card from The Ribbon Girl

Here is a close up of my flower arrangement.

A close look at Ladybug Marci.
I die cut a Spellbinders oval and stamped around the edges with an IndigoBlu stamp.
I sprinkled shabby white embossing enamel around the edges of the oval and matted it onto a Spellbinders floral oval.
I adhered a length of 3mm Ivory pearl bead string around the outside and adhered ladybug Marci to the centre using 2mm 3D sticky tape.
I dotted Ladybug marci's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen and adhered 3mm liking lilac pearls to the bows in her hair.

I hope you like my card?
