Hey Ladybug

     I started with Melanie Muenchinger"s "Inspiration Mosaic" stamp set. I stamped it with black on white. I then stamped the same image on My Mind's Eye: Buttercup Polka Dot with gray ink. I fussy cut each section of the stamped image and pieced it together. The other stamps are from "Lovely Ladybug". 

     I decided to try a couple homemade embellishments. I took a 1 1/2 in. black button and attached a 1 1/4 in. stamped background image to it with Glossy Accents, then covered the top with more Glossy Accents to make it shiny. I also added glitter to 3 heart-shaped black brads. I then used a toothpick to place red dots from a pearl pen.
