Ladybug Thank You Card

On Monday, I was talking to my friend at work about her daughter's birthday party.  The theme of the party was centered around ladybugs and they were prevalent in the inviation and the cute gifts for the kids that attended.  Notably, the ladybug on the invitation came from the Walk In My Garden cartridge. Needless to say, the party was a success and our conversation turned to the topic of thank you cards. I suggested that she make the thank you cards and just keep it simple for mass production purposes. At the end of the conversation, I offered to create a prototype card that would be easy to make. I went home that evening and whipped up this little card (using only scraps!) in about 20 minutes, which is a record for me. 

Case Base: Black cardstock  from Recollections sized at 4x4".
First layer (sky): sized at 3 3/4 x 3 3/4".
