This is a really quick post to share a card I've made this evening for the current Less is More challenge where the theme is 'Little Creatures'.
I thought I would have lots to choose from in my stash but it was actually quite limited...apart from butterflies! I ended up inking up a stamp from a set I've not used before...
This is a teeny card, only 10cm x 10cm. The little row of ladybirds is from a Country Companions set which was part of a bundle I bought from eBay a while ago. I hadn't really noticed them until I was specifically looking for some 'little creatures'. I found a scrap of white cardstock and stamped the ladybirds in black ink and then coloured them with my Inktense pencils, just using a wet brush to pick up the colour from the pencil tip. I then manipulated the sentiment stamp slightly to follow the curve of the bugs and also stamped this in black. I used a square die to cut out the design and then matted this onto a scrap of black card, creating a narrow border. I then popped this up onto the card base using 3D foam.

I would also like to enter this card at the following challenge blogs:

Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 147 (the white and black mats were cut from cardstock in my scraps as it's such a tiny card)
I hope you're all having a fab week...not long now until the weekend :)
