I used Melon Mambo CS to make the 5 3/4" square card base. This layout is great for using patterned papers and I chose four designs from the cheery and bright SU! Sunshine and Sprinkles pack to use on my card. I stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with inks and a blender pen. I stamped and fussy cut a second flower so I could pop it up and stamped the sentiment. I stamped and die cut the bee and ladybird and added fun touches - Star Dust Stickles to the bee wings and Crystal Effects to the ladybird body - then I popped both of them up.
For an extra touch of fun I cut the card front in half diagonally.
Here's the inside of the card with a sentiment and another glossy ladybird. That ladybird with her smiley face is adorable!
I covered the envelope flap with yellow patterned paper and added a stamped, coloured and fussy cut flower to finish.
