Ladybug Surprise Card

Hi all, another very hot day here in Houston! It is late afternoon now and I just finished another card just in time to get out of my craft room which has west windows! To hot to work in there now! This is a card that I have had on my list to do for a bit. It features a ladybug cut with my circle Nesties and has quilled spots and antennae. The wings open up to reveal a surprise sentiment, "What's Up?". The edges of the ladybug wings are inked and pierced.
I used one of the designs of Whirly Flowers from Fred She Said and left them white except for the centers. I had to have some bling, so I glittered them a bit along with the leaves. They are really sparky IRL, the picture never seems to show that off. These flowers are so easy and fast to cut out and there are many coloring options.

Since there was not a suitable place to put a bow because the wings had to open, I added the little bit of ribbon ruffle at the sides of the ladybug. The inside of the card was decorated with red, black and white mats embellished with small ladybugs. A short post for today, have a great Shabbat!
Comments welcome, I'd love to hear from you!

Beautiful card, Sonya! The idea of opening wings is great!
