Official State Insect
I was over at Gina K’s Stamp TV and there was a color challenge for red, black and white. I love these colors together and just had to play along. You can read all about it here
I used SU’s Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and my black is from Hollos Paper – a cool store here in Ohio that sells cs for a wonderful price. My black is a wonderful thick cs that is black on one side, white on the other and a super weight for a card base. Unfortunately, you cannot order from Hollos on line, but for me, it is about an hour drive and worth every second.
I used Unity’s distressed dots for my background and Unity’s Little Buggers for my ladybug. I just love ladybugs! They are so cute and perfect for so many different cards,and I just learned that ladybugs are the official state insect of Ohio. Really? I never knew Ohio had an official state insect. Hmmmm . . . interesting.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
