Ladybug theme

One for all the little ladybug’s in our lives this sweet theme is perfect if you are after a girly theme which has a great vibrant colour palette of red, black and green rather than the traditional pink or pastel colours! Of course you can add in pinks or yellows into the colour mix for this theme as well if you wish.

It’s also a great theme if you want a garden theme but something different to Woodlands or Fairies.

Hope you enjoy this selection !
