Friendly Miss Ladybug

A simply friendly card today, just because and poppies are a Springtime thing, so I am entering this for the SCS challenge! 
 I am feeling a little under the weather...what I thought were chigger bites turn out to be shingles.  Not the end of the world, just a touch uncomfortable and to be truthful, a little painful, but it's a beautiful day here today, 84 and sunny so I will keep calm and carry on, as that poster says.  
The patterned paper is a K and Co from a couple of years ago, still one of my favourites.  I love seeing this cream and black with a pop of colour and I chose to use red for the poppies.  I need to make a card like this with blue poppies for a friend that loves everything blue ;
  The poppy stamp is a new one that I bought at Ellen Hutson's, from the  Magenta Company.  I just stamped right onto the PTI kraft cs, coloured with a Copic marker, added some black Atyou Spica pen to the centers and layered onto this black cs frame that I made with a MS punch around set.  I removed the little ladybug from a tiny clothes peg and glued her onto the black and cream paper that I had placed on the oval frame back.  The oval frame is from the little embellishments that they offer.  The cream and black alpha stickers are Cosmo Cricket.
Hope your week is going well and thanks for taking a peek,
