RES-Q-Challenge #11

This is for RES-Q-CHallenge #11 from JoAnn....going along with our theme "Gettin' Buggy" she challenged us to make a card with flowers and bigs. Of course I had to use my favorite Little Lady...and Im sure you've noticed that she is purple....well, I saw this story while looking up ladybug poems for my friend's daughter who is having a Ladybug themed party. Her daughter's favorite color is purple too, so I'll be using this for her birthday card! Here is the card....

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Little Lady, Mega Mixed Messages
paper- orchid opulence, PTI white
ink- orchid opulence, barely banana, pretty in pink, certainly celery, black
accessories- ribbon, prima, rhinestone, brad

and here is the story:

The Legend Of The 
Purple Ladybugs 

It is said that deep in the Forest Tyrian, 
not so far from the sea,

where indigo grows 
and glows with deep purple 

and flowers of purple and trees 
of green and purple 
meld with the sunshine and sea 

there lives a clan of Ladybird beetles 
small and sweet and purple.

They dance and fly in joyous gaiety and 
illuminous animation 
on purple sunbeam mists.

And if you listen with all your heart,

you will hear them laugh and 
sing and giggle 
with purple pleasure, and purple 
and call to each other in 
bubbling purple tones.

Few passers-by have bothered to walk the 
purple path 
through the Forest Tyrian.

Far fewer have ever set eyes on the 
purple Ladybugs.

But one day, like the dolphins of the sea 
and the whales of the oceans, 
who also call to one another in 
a harmonious timbre,
unknown to humans,

One day, the purple ladybugs will also 
be known 
as the communicative, higher 
intelligence variety.

One day. 

Have a GREAT Day!

I love your lavender lady bug! What a cute story, too.

ADORABLE! Too bad you're giving it away because I was going to ask if I could have it. :-(
