Do you know what day it is? It's TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday and the Ladybug Crafts Ink DT had a challenge among ourselves. Kerry, Head Ladybug, chose the challenge for us this week and she chose "pink plus one". Yes, other than our image, we were only allowed pink plus one other color. Now I love pink, especially on my cards, so I was really happy when I heard what the challenge was this week. But after I had my image done and was getting ready to make my card, I had a heck of a time using pink and only one other color. I guess that's why they call it a "challenge" - huh? Anyway, here's my card
I used Bathtub Nikki and colored that gorgeous girl and her sweet little dog, Buttercup, with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I added lots of glitter to the soapsuds. Looks like even Buttercup is going to be smelling pretty by the time Nikki gets done! I used my Nestabilities to cut out the image and mats. I used a Martha Stewart around-the-page punch on my pink bazzill paper. I made my flower from a little piece of fabric and added a couple of buttons and floss, and added some pearls to the corners. My handmade flower actually matches my cardstock much better IRL than it does in this picture.
