Huge Ladybird!

I've had quite a productive weekend so managed some challenges! I do like simple uncluttered sketches, this one is from Tamara Sketches:
You'll have to excuse the size of the wobbly Lulu Ladybird in the centre - I'd not realised just how big she was until I'd done the colouring and tried to add her to the card! Ah well! Everything on the card (with exception to the ribbon) is from the very soon to be released Sugar Birdies cd.
The sentiment oval has been handwritten as it was blank, and I've cut a ladybird from the remains of the backing paper to hide the one which was upside down. More concentration needed when writing sentiments!
I've ripped the edges of the backing paper, inked with faded black and then red ink, and doodled a line around the edge. Lulu has been coloured with watercolour paints and pencils and I've made the antenna from wire and black card with a wobbly eye added! I recycled a big spring from one of my Birthday cards which I've attached to Lulu so she wobbles.
