What Color is Your Ladybug?

Sorry for the long delay in posting, I've been up to my eyeballs in last minute summer fun! My regular job has been fairly quiet and I've really been enjoying more free time with the little ones. However, I can hardly believe that September is just a few short weeks away...Repeat with me, "I am not ready for Christmas!" I even uttered the words, "maybe you should put that on your Christmas wish list" to my oldest today! The summer has gone by too quickly...and apparently the days have gone by too quickly as I can hardly believe it's been almost a week since my last post! I've had this Papertreyink sketch challenge card in the 'ready to be posted' file for two weeks now! For the first time, I did not alter the layout! I did, however, alter my little ladybugs! For some reason, I just can't bring myself to make a red ladybug. I'm not sure why...For this card, at least, it was because I wanted my bugs to match the colors in my paper. (This is some fabulous Crate baby-themed paper!) And I figured yellow would be a good color for a baby congrats card! There you have it, my excuse (at least for this card) for why my ladybug is not red! How about you? Ever toy with the true color of an insect on your cards? Enjoy!
