Birthday Bug

I created this birthday card using Lara Ladybug from Digital Delights. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Stamp With Fun.  The base of my card is black backed in red cardstock.  I added a block of white cardstock that I inked lightly around the edges with black ink.  Then I added a square of black cardstock backed in red ontop of the white.  I cut a strip of red cardstock and using the eraser end of a pencil and black ink I added dots to the red cardstock.  Before adding it to the card I added a piece of white cardstock to the bottom of the red strip.  I cut along the edge using scalloped scissors.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it in red cardstock.  I lightly inked the edges of the red cardstock with black ink.  I backed the sentiment, "Sweet Hugs For The Birthday Bug!", in red and then in black and then again in white. I added 3 red rhinestones to the top left corner.
