Nettie's "Sock it to Me" Challenge



I saw Nettie's post about sock-inspired cards and decided to accept her challenge! I found these socks at Wal-Mart for $1! Gotta love Wal-Mart... don't have any around me, I got these last weekend when I was out of town. I chose them because I knew it would be a challenge for me to make a card with ladybugs (I don't have any ladybug stamps or brass templates). I made the ladybug using my Marvy oval punch and some small circle punches for the dots. The antennae are hand cut. Go check out Nettie's challenge!
