Totally Ladybug Tuesday - One for the Boys

Hello everyone!  Do you know what today is?  That's right...it's Totally Ladybug Tuesday.  The Ladybug Crafts Ink DT had a challenge among ourselves and Pinky, one of the lovely Ladybugs, chose the challenge this week.  Pinky asked us to make "one for the boys".   

I used Cheeky Jack and colored that little cutie with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I used Basic Grey Kioshi papers for my card.  This has been one of my favorite Basic Grey releases.  I just love all the colors in the Kioshi line.  Anyway, I cut my images and mats with my Nestabilities and added some hemp and buttons to my card.  I have such a hard time making cards for guys.  If I can't slap on some glitter, stickles, flowers and ribbon, I really struggle lol!   I used the Tim Hotz ticket strip die to cut out the ticket for my sentiment.  I love that die.

Be sure to check out what the other Lovely Ladybugs have created this week:
