Braided Edge - Ladybug Daisies Planter

Hello, everyone.  A very warm welcome to my newest followers: TracyShirleyAdieKatiand Christine. So nice to have you here!  

I like to play along each month in the progressive challenge over at Imagine That...digis by Kris.  If you participated last month, then you already received this month's digi:  Ladybug Daisies Planter.  If not, why not head on over and get it for yourself at a discounted price.  If you play along this month, then you will receive next month's digi for free.  Thank you, Kris!

I don't have a lot of time these days so I decided to use the pre-coloured version this month. I like to do that sometimes, especially when I think the colouring of the image is already so beautiful!  To add a little pizzazz, I used the braided edge technique that I just learned last week.  You can see my first braided edge card here. The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Shower Blossom, and the ribbon is from Offray. The little Get Well looking glass sentiment was part of some candy that I won - thank you, Barb! - and the wooden ladybug embellishments were from the dollar store.  Cardstock is from Staples.
