Valentine Ladybug

When I was in Michael's last week, I came across this lady bug stamp in the $1.50 bin.  It has three little ladybugs on it in a row.  Instead of dots, the ladybugs have hearts.  I knew that it was the perfect stamp for my mom's Valentine's Day card as she loves ladybugs because her last name is Bugg!

My intention was to create a card with a row of ladybugs inside a scallop edge.  That plan did not come together and instead I end up with this card with only one ladybug on it... though I did also put one on the inside and one on the envelope!

Then the card sat on my desk waiting to have the envelope addressed and when I came back to it tonight, I decided that it needed something more.  So I added a layer of a basic black card stock and a scallop circle created with my Cricut, Sure Cuts A Lot software and a svg file from Two Peas in a Bucket and this is how it turned out:

Do you think it is an improvement?
