Paper Nest Dolls 'Shaped Card' Challenge

Hello my friends!  It's time for another Paper Nest Dolls challenge.  The theme for PNDC #11 is 'Shaped Card' Challenges - creating cards that are NOT square or rectangular.  The challenge begins today, 8/19 and ends on Friday 8/30.  
What's a challenge without prizes  - there are 4 winners in total for each challenge - 3 winners chosen by our design team and these winners get one free PND digi of their choice - and 1 randomly chosen winner who will receive this awesome prize package  

The image I chose for this challenge is called 'Ladybug Emma' and what better shaped card then to actually make it look like a ladybug.  So here is the card when it's closed.  Gotta love red and black right?  Pretty easy to make, cut out one 6x6 circle in black and one in red.  Cut the red one in half and attach to the black one at the top with a couple of brads.

When you open up the little wings who should appear but lovely little Emma.  She's colored with COPIC markers (see list at bottom of post).  She's cut with Spellbinders Label 18 die.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up stamp and die cut called 'Itty Bitty Banners'.
Here's a close up of Emma all colored in...note her little antennae sparkle with Stickles
