Handmade Thursday - a birthday card

It's been a while since I made a card.
Lazy I guess.
But this is for the mother-in-law who is a card maker herself. She actually appreciates a handmade card and the thought which goes into it.

The ladybird is a stamp I got free from a magazine. Not that long ago, I think it was possibly Simply Homemade. I coloured it with my watercolour pencils. Papers came from my stash, and the greeting is handwritten.
