Monthly card swap

I belong to a wonderful monthly card swap that has a new hostess from our group each month and she picks the theme for her month.
Aprils theme is "Spring is here" so I first picked a layout pattern from  Splitcoast  (SC278) then I used a digi scene from  Bugaboo stamps called ladybugs. (you should check out her blog on Tuesdays and Fridays for her freebies they are amazing)
 okay, so here is what I did.

I Printed the image on SU whisper white card stock, colored the flowers with Stampin up markers in blush blossom and pretty in pink.
for the center of the flowers I used stampendous fun flock in lemonde yellow.   The leafs were colored with green galore, certainly celery and pear pizzazz SU markers

Ladybugs- SU markers in real red, going gray and basic black.  I cut out the ladybug body then applied crystal effects and dimensionals as well as tiny black rhinestones to make them pop off the page.
layered the image on SU pretty in pink and certainty celery
I also used cuttlebug folder stylized flower on SU pretty in pink layered it on natural card stock
DS paper- TPC studio called girlfriends layered on SU certainty celery
Did the same with striped DS paper that I don't have a name for. (sorry)
and last I used dew drops in pearl white and green
Bows made with SU satin ribbon in pretty in pink.
OK... man that's a lot of work getting all that info.  I'll make sure I pay better attention in the future while I create.
