Two cards from a friend's photograph + crafting day

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there.  For the first time this week it's not raining.....yet, but it is very wild out there and not at all warm!
Despite the weather, tomorrow I am off to Macclesfield with friends for a crafting day so I will tell you about it in the week :o)
A very good friend, AngelaG2 from Docrafts, sent me a photograph which was taken by her OH David. Angela threw down the gauntlet and 'invited' me to make a card with it. Well I couldn't resist the challenge could I so here are the two cards I made. I must say that I am green with envy that I didn't take the photograph myself! :o)


The reason I superimposed the ladybugs onto the photograph of Wollaton Hall (below) is that is where I first met Angela and David :o)


As usual, I cut and folded the card to size, in this case 6x6 and 5x7. I used linen card on one and hammered card on the other. Marianne dies used and for the 'brads' on the second card I punched three tiny circles and covered them with glossy accents.
I hope I have done justice to David's wonderful photograph :o)
