Flowers in Bloom is the challenge at AiFactory Challenges this week.You have until Wednesday 27 th April  11.59 to upload your project.Stop by the challenge site to check out full details on how to play and what you could win.Don’t forget to take a look at the wonderful DT creations while you’re there!

For my card I’ve used several images from the Cute little baby in lady bug clothes clipart graphics from AiFactory.On the ladybird,the dotty ‘shell’ and eyes on the baby I’ve used Glossy Accents to give the appearance of real ladybirds.Here’s a closer view :

The floral spray is printed directly onto the base card using My Verse Editor Plus CD-Rom from Crafty Ideas by Kaz.This is really made for creating inserts but as I’m totally useless at making templates I’ve started using this when I’ve wanted to print something straight onto the base.I was going to add a small piece of DP or embossed card but once I’d cut and laid everything out I decided it looked better without. I’ve used 2 sizes of flat backed pearls to add to the centres of the flower trio.

I remember as a young child getting my parents  to recite  the rhyme over and over again and then repeating it everytime I saw a ladybird in the garden.Now we have loads of ladybirds enjoying the sunshine in our garden my kids have started saying it too!
