Ladybug hugs

As promised, I'm back to remind you of the current Path of Positivity challenge "Opportunity".
If you want to see what I prepared for the challenge starter, and meet a wonderful big-eyed girl by OddballArtCo, have a look at one of my previous posts.
For the midway inspiration, I'll share a card with a lovely ladybug from our second sponsor Deedee's Digis.

It's only a quick card as I had a pretty busy weekend:
To match the ladybug, I wanted to combine the image with some red and white paper, probably one with polka dots. When I was going through my paper stash however, I found this green clover/bug paper. As it's pretty playful itself, the only embellishments added are a few red rhinestones, and tiny white pearls on the bug image. 
It must have been part of some New Year's paper pack, but I decided to use it even though we're in the middle of summer. Somehow, it reminds me of all the people who make resolutions on January 1st, only to break them in a couple of weeks. What they don't realize is that success of a decision doesn't depend on the date it's made. Rather than that, one has to be ready and willing to make a change happen. Every day can be an opportunity to turn your life around, stop an annoying habbit or start something you've always dreamed of. 

Talking about opportunities: there's still plenty of time to submit your "Opportunity" related project for the current PoP challenge. Join the fun til September 6th to win some of the wonderful prizes ;)
