Love Bug

I have one more for you today....a step card. I made this step card from black cardstock. I then used some core'dinations cardstock for the side panels. I embossed them with the Seeing Spots embossing folder and then I sanded the embossed part and the edges so the red would show through. I cut a piece of patterned cardstock and mounted it on the back step. I cut the sentiment, "love bug," from Simply Charmed at 1 1/4." The heart is cut at 2 1/4" from Simply Sweet. I then mounted it on the second step. The ladybug is from Create a Critter at 3 1/4" and mounted it on the front. I used the shadow feature on all the pieces that I cut. On the ladybug I did not glue the wings down, so that I could bend them up a little and give it a little more depth and dimension.
I made this card for the following challenges:
My Sheri Crafts: Valentine's Day
Paper Cutz: ladybug, bee or butterfly image
Card Patterns: sketch #102
