Ladybugs and Flowers Background

Hello friends! Hope everything is doing well :)
I love creating stamped backgrounds. For that reason, I'm sharing a card I made using my own background.
I colored it with markers and used a white gel pen to accent the center of the flowers and the ladybug's eyes. For a bit of sparkle, I used a glitter gel pen on the spots of the wings.
I'm playing along in the CA(E) this Sketch #169 Challenge.

¡Hola amigos! Espero que estén muy bien :)
Me encanta crear mis propios fondos utilizando sellos. Por tanto, hoy les quiero compartir una tarjeta que hice con mi propio fondo, el cual coloreé con marcadores.
También utilicé un lapicero de gel blanco para resaltar los ojos de las mariquitas y los centros de las flores; y para las manchas de las alas utilicé un lapicero de gel con brillitos ( en la segunda fotografía puedes ver estos detalles).
Estoy participando en el reto de CAS(E) this Sketch #169, me encanta el sketch de esta semana.

Here's the card...

A Moo-tiful Birthday Card

Hello!! Today's card was made for my sister in-law's birthday. She loves cows so to celebrate her birthday I wanted to make a cow's birthday card... and I really enjoyed creating that cute scene.

¡Hola! La tarjeta de hoy fue hecha para el cumpleaños de mi cuñada. A ella le encantan las vacas, así que, para celebrar su cumpleaños quise hacerle una tarjeta que incluyera una; y realmente disfruté creando esa linda escena.

I created my own sentiment using an alphabet stamp set. I think it's funny and perfect for the theme of the card.
Creé mi propio mensaje usando un set de sellos de letras. Es divertido y perfecto para el tema de la tarjeta.
