Wish Big, Little Ladybug

Happy Friday! How's your week going? Who has already been shopping or is going shopping this weekend for all the sales? I would love to go for the sales, but I hate crowds, so I'll probably skip it. But if you are going shopping, have fun for me!

I absolutely love the card I made that I'm showing you today. Sometimes I'll make a card and think, "ehh." But sometimes I'll make a card and think, "Wow. I did that!" LOL  I followed a sketch of a card I saw on Pinterest. Not sure where she got the sketch from or if she created it. The link just goes to her Etsy and there's no info on the card specifics that I could find.

I love all the layers on my card! Take a looksee.....

Kraft card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Gray 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Black dots 4" x 5 1/4"

Gray strip 2 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Red dots 2 1/8" x 5 1/4"

Gray mats 2 1/8" x 3 5/8" (x 2)
Newspaper print 2" x 3 1/2" (x 2)

Green brackets on left side (leftovers I was going to toss, but decided to use),  and shaped sentiment matting are from a Label & Bracket Punch
Top left corners of mats punched with a Fiskar corner rounder
