DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #40 - Spots and/or Stripes

Lexi's Creations Challenge #40 The challenge this fortnight is to create a project  that contains  "spots and/or stripes'.   Take a quick trip over to  Lexi's site , you might want to join the fun!

I choose  one of Lexi's wonderful images called 'Mushroom Ladybug', decided purple or shades thereof  was my colour of choice and was off to make a purple mushroom card..  I added   green to give  it some  humph and  a little butterfly! For the accent flower, I choose a green  one and added some little flourishes for leaves . I cut out an additional ladybug and placed it ontop of the stamped  image to make it dimensional,  then added  crystal effects to the ladybug (hard to detect it from the photo). I also made the little yellow flower dimensional .  Two of the longer leaves behind the mushroom had their tops cut off when the image was die cut, so  added  two leaves to overlap the border.
