Feeling Dotty with Penny Black

It's been far too long since I've played with any Penny Black stamps. Luckily the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog was there to give me a nudge in the right direction. This dotted piece of paper recently turned up on my desk so it seemed that this card was just begging to be made:
Since this was put together with scrap and leftovers I'm going to play in Pixie's Snippet Playground as well. I haven't been for awhile. I hope my key still works!

The Fine Print: Loving Ladybugs by Penny Black, bug border by Martha Steward, scalloped circles by Stampin' Up, dotted paper and ribbon from my stash.

Hmmm... well, ladybirds used to be my one of my favourite insects until I moved in to a house infested with them! Still, it's a very sweet stamp!

And yes, 2015 is on the way... well, the round-up of 2015 is on the way. 2015 itself is outta here.

Absolutely adorable, and I love that you were able to work in the tiny heart string! Perfect combination of all the elements & delightful to have it fit the bill as a snippety card too. Happy New Year, and TFS. Our DD had a vehicle that had the same gas cap problem you mentioned. Found out the truck had a catalytic converter issue, which was replaced with the warranty, thank heavens! Hugs

LOVELY card PJ. Funnily enough, I was only looking at a ladybird stamp the other day (not Penny Black though).

Hugs, Sarn xxx
