Matilda with Ladybug - Thinking of you

I just love this Tilda (of course, I say that about everyone!! LOL!). My niece, Megan, absolutely loves ladybugs so I made this card for her. She lives in Michigan and I live in Colorado and I miss her and her sister (and my sister of course) so so much!

Challenge: Just Magnolia Blog Challenge

Paper is from Stampin up, CTMH and I can't remember where I got the ladybug paper from. I used a piece of pink cardstock and embossed it, then sanded the top to reveal the white core. Hydrangeas are Martha Stewart along with the ladybug punch. The other flowers are Prima. Pearls are from SU. I can't remember where I found the technique to curve a border punch, I'll try to find it and post it later. Or just leave a message and I'll post directions.

ETA: I had several request for the curved border, I couldn't find the site that I saw the tutorial for it (if someone knows, please let me know). So I created a tutorial for it, click here
