Sending Flowers Little Ladybug - Hey Lady Card for #PCC371

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you may card that I designed based off of this week's Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  I decided to use the Sending Flowers Dies which are part of the Coordinating Product Release (while supplies last of until March 31, 2020) and the Little Ladybug Saleabration Host Stamp Set.  I used the two to create a super cute window card that I just love.  Here's a look at my card.

Here's a look at the sketch that inspired today's card.

Tips & Tricks:

I made my card by die cutting the large floral circle die cut from the center of a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock to make the card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).  Once the center of the card was cut out I needed to die cut all the flowers in from the different colors.  I cut them multiple times from Purple Posy, Calypso Color, Flirty Flamingo, and So Saffron Cardstocks.  This is a great way to use up some scraps, which is what I did.  I actually cut a few more than I needed.  I then attached each of the colored flowers to each flower.  I added each alternating the colors with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Before gluing all the flowers down I placed my Silicone Craft Mat underneath the card front.  The silicon craft mat is a must have item since snail, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, tear & tape, and hot glue will not stick to it.

Once I had all the flowers covered, I then stamped three of the ladybugs from the Little Ladybug Saleabration Host Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Once the ink dried I colored each of them with my Stampin' Blends in the following colors; Flirty Flamingo & Petal Pink, Purple Posy & Gray Granite, Calypso Coral & Petal Pink Combo Packs.  The first color listed is the colors of the wings and the second color is the face and belly color.  Once they were colored I used the Ladybugs Dies (also part of the Coordinating Product Release) to cut them out.  Once I had them cut out I cut out two of the grass clumps from a scrap of Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  I then stamped a sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock in Purple Posy Ink (Discontinued).  But, you could use the Purple Posy Stampin' Write Marker from the 2019-2020 In Color Stampin' Write Markers.

I pulled up all the little flaps that the floral die made on the outside of the circle.  I then added a piece of the 2019-2021 In Colors Designer Series Paper (in Seaside Spray) behind the floral die cut with liquid glue.  I then added the flirty flamingo ladybug tucked into the top left corner secured with a little liquid glue.  I added one of the tulip die cut to her flower with a Mini Stampin' Dimensional.  I then added the Purple Posy ladybug at the top with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I then used the scalloped banner die from the Sending Flowers Dies and cut out the sentiment.  I added it to the card with a Dimensional and a little liquid glue.  I then popped the other ladybug on the card over the end of the sentiment strip with a dimensional.  The grass was added the same way.  I did take a little mossy meadow ink and did a little ink blending up to the grass clumps to have a little bit of a contrast.
