Love You Lots, Playful Backgrounds, Congratulations Card

I found this fun card on Pinterest and I just had to give it a try.  I loved the ladybugs.  This is from the "Love you Lots" Hostess set.  I just had to have that set and only used two of the four character images in the set.  See how bad I wanted it???  LOL  I think I wanted it just for the ladybugs!!!

I didn't really do this card justice.  The top sponging is way too dark in comparison to the original card.  You can see the original card here

The base of this card is a folded half sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  On top of that is a piece of Watermelon Wonder that was cut 4-5/8" x 3-3/8".  The Whisper White layer was cut 4-1/2" x 3-1/4".  

I stamped the ladybugs first.  I didn't quite get them to hold hands like the original card has them doing.  I much prefer the poly stamps for things like that.  I colored them in with the Watermelon Wonder marker.

Then I stamped the circles and dots on the top using the "Playful Backgrounds" set and Watermelon Wonder ink.  I stamped the circles directly from the ink pad and I stamped the dots after stamping off once.  Then I sponged the top, which is SO much darker than the original card.  

I stamped the words using Basic Black ink.

And lastly I added the rhinestones.  The original card is SO much cuter but I still like this anyway!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
