Pixie Dust...with wings!

Pixie Dust studio blog is having a Things with Wings use anything that flutters or flies.  Normally, I'd be using butterflies...but this week, ladybugs fit the bill...TWICE.  You'll see what I mean.  The ladybug on the first card is an old TAC stamp, but the sentiment is from CTMH.  I still love that you can see through those stamps and you can bend and shape them to work with your images.  So, Hi Lady was shaped around the ladybug.  His black dots are stickled (i guess thats a verb!) to shine!
The next ladybug is hidden!  See if you can find it!  I had been wanting to try the "flowerpot" cards that stampers are making.  However, I had a hard time getting the insert with the flowers on it to "stay" or "sit" properly in the pot.  Then it hit can be an easel card!   I built the flowerpot basically with the dimensions/look of the original, but it's only one layer on the card front.  Then, when you open the card, you can prop it up on the built in "easel" (two rhinestones) and have a nice pot of flowers (that won't wilt or die!) on your desk!  I think our secretaries will get these for Administrative Secretaries Day!  

Did you find the ladybug???  She's on the inside!!  :)
