Reminder Post for Challenge #17 - Grasshopper Green

 Hi there Squashettes, it's reminder time here at Let's Squash It! as we continue to play with the colour green, an insect of your choice AND those all important embossing folders!

We're thrilled to be joined by the lovely Marianne as our Empress this month. If you take a peek here you'll see her gorgeous card, plus the little bit of fabulousness that Gail created too.

Here's what I made as my second card for this challenge.

To be honest, I followed a very similar formula to my first card, and let this beautiful EF from Altenew do all the work. My insect is a tiny Hero Arts ladybird from a set I bought very early on in my cardmaking career. I don't think I've ever used this little stamp before! I stamped the ladybird on the stalk of the daisy, and then stamped and fussy cut another for the body. This looks quite effective IRL as I added some Glossy Accents to the ladybird for a little shine.

We've got three beautiful cards in the gallery for this challenge, but to be honest, Marianne, Gail and I would love to see a few more and very much hope you'll come and join the fun. Don't forget, there's always a random prize from our fabulous Prize Vault on offer for one lucky player!

Your cards looks stunning, Jo, with that fab embossing folder and the sweet ladybug. I suppose great minds think alike, as you will see when I upload my second card. Such a fun coincidence...
