I didn't use harsh reds for the ladybug, and I am thinking they were dusty pinks. Maybe the same as the flowers. I was going to use a true red color but with the color of the polka dot paper I thought the softer ones looked better than something bright and harsh. On the cheeks of the cat I used dusty rose. That gave him a nice little blush on those fat cheeks.
For the corner of the card I matted my yellow cardstock and patterned paper and then marked 1.25" inside from the bottom right hand corner. I measured 2 and 3/8" up the right hand side and marked and then cut then so it made a diagonal cut off the corner of the mat. This allowed me to just fold the kraft carstock back onto the card so the polka dot triangle could be attached. I hope that made sense.
The pieces of the polka dot were cut at 1.5" x 2.75" and then cut diagonally to get the triangle piece. For the piece on the front I cut top right to bottom left, and then vice versa for the little corner on the inside of the card. I didn't want to use a full sheet of the lovely polka dot on the inside of the card since polka dot is my favorite and that is why I just did a little triangle at the bottom. I used my atg gun to hold the flap back onto the front of the card. I used a tapestry size needle to use the twine and sew the button onto the card.
Well that is the last of this set of cards! I certainly hope I can think of something else to make this week!
