CAS Lady Bug Thank You

Hello! A lot of you probably know I am a huge Changito fan...also Calendar Chicks and Fluffles. You can imagine my excitement when I found out Stampendous has a blog with challenges! I made a copy of the sketch, which was a bit of a challenge since it was a square. I had a plan, but when I found these lady bug buttons, I decided I had better go with my "Lady Bug Fluffles" stamp!
This card is super clean and simple. It's 4 1/4" square; I did try to stay true to the sketch, but I left off the brads in the corners of the image panel. I thought they would be too much with the buttons.... The image is colored with pencils; Fluffles does have a bit of gray shading, too.
Image: Stampendous
Sentiment: SU!
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Black, SU! Real Red
Embellie: Favorite Findings Buttons, SU! Black Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Crayolas/Prismas/Goo Gone, SU! 1" Round Punch
This is a pretty cool sketch; I'll probably be using it again. I wish square cards didn't cost more to mail, though....
Thanks for stopping by!

This is so cute, those buttons are perfect for this image. I didn't know Stampendous had a challenge blog, I'll have to check it out. This is a fun card, you really rocked the sketch.
