Ladybug Kindness and Candy Pencils!

Take a Double Step Ladder card, add mirror image balancing lady bugs (digi stamp), sparkly flowers, ribbon, bling and you have a dimensional spring card!

Really a fun card and the cuts were easier than I thought they would be.
I found the template for this at: Photobucket

I am entering this in the following challenges:

365 Cards - Day 44, Fancy Folds - Double Stair Step Card (my DD is the designer for that day, check it out!)
Designed 2 Delight - use the freebie image, Lady Bug Balancing act by Faith

A Spoonful of Sugar - All Creatures Great and Small
Craft Your Passion - 2 X 2, make a pair
Creative Card Crew - spring
Dutch Dare - fancy folds
Incy Wincy Designs - Flower Frenzy
Papertake Weekly - truly Dimensional
Tuesday Throwdown - Sparkle and Bling
Your Next Stamp Challenge - Texture It
Pixie Dust Studio - Say It Out Loud, use a sentiment

Also wanted to show off test examiners pencils for the Missouri Assessement Progran that we are now in the middle of. Since I am the BTC (or Building Test Coordinator, no pay raise with the title!), I do a training every year with the teachers and constantly say, "Only #2 pencils." And every year someone will ask, "Can we use mechanical pencils?" NO, your may not! Arghhh! So this picture show you my reminder for this year. I used SU! supplies except for the computer generated sentiment and the gold rim around the eraser end.

Have a great Sunday!

Your card is beautiful, dear friend!!! Love all of the pretty little details, and ADORE the double stepper! I have sort of a 'variation' on the step card ready to post next Weds., so be sure to stop by! Summer vacation is getting closer! Can't wait to see you!
