New Release at Julia Spiri Stamps - Little Ant

Good Morning and welcome to another new release post from me for Julia Spiri Stamps. We have some fabulous new images being released today and I was asked to use the adorable Little Ant - isn't she just so cute?!

I decided to go for a Z-fold card today as I printed the image quite large and added a dotty background instead of colouring in the sky with clouds, like I usually do my skies. I also used the ladybird border die but cut it only in black so it would look like ants. I think it kind of does! Hope you like her!

This card is also for
