I Love You Ladybugs!

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone had a great day!
Here is a super cute ladybug card for you:
This is actually version 2 of this card.  I made one yesterday with pinks and reds, similar sketch pattern, and same image...but I didn't like it as much as I loved this one!  The Paper Variety's challenge this week is black and white with a kiss of color. I might have used more than a "kiss" of red, but I think it is just enough to pop!
The ladybugs are a freebie digi stamp from Lily-boo's Boutique.  They are printed 3 times, 2 are glued together to make them sturdy.  I glued one layer down and them used mounting tape to pop the other 2 up.
I used my new Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge for the frame!  I just love that cartridge!  There are 3 layers of ribbons at the bottom.  I really liked the white ribbon because I felt it matched the frame really well...but it got lost in the white background without something behind it.  So I used a wide black ribbon as the backing, and then I found some Valentine heart ribbon I bought last year to layer on top of the white.  I think it worked out pretty good.
The last item I added was the roses!
These are probably my favorite part of the card!  I've been making a lot of these lately and they are just so beautiful!  They always add so much to the card.  I put some glitter glue around the petals so they sparkled a little bit.  Cut out some swirls and added a few silver paint dots so that they didn't blend into the background too much.
Then I decorated the inside!
I've really be trying to improve my decorating on the insides of my cards.  I never used to do that so it's new to me.  But I think I'm getting better :)
This card turned out so cute!  I just love it!  Ladybugs are always so cute and they just work perfectly on this card!
