Secret Crafter Sketch - Bug - Things with Wings

Three challenges to combine today.

Firstly at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: the challenge was a sketch. Nice and simple to follow.

Secondly at Polka Doodles this week: their challenge was to use a Bug and any alternative to ribbon.

I designed my own Ladybird for this one, been wanting to do it for ages, so it seemed like a good time to get it done. The challenge at Bee Crafty, another challenge blog I only just found is for 'Things with Wings', so I thought my Ladybird might do here.

For the alternative to ribbon, I used printed paper as a strip, and the looped another bit over to make a fake bow effect, which I stuck to the card with a gem brad. Would have preferred a round one, but didn't have one. About normal eh?

Hope it will do. . .?
