Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Ribbon

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Yes, that's right...it's Totally Ladybug Tuesday and we have a new challenge over on the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  I chose the challenge this week and I chose ribbon.  So, all you have to do is add ribbon to your project this week.  Now you can't get much easier than that so why don't you play along with us this week?  Here's my card for this challenge.

I used Birthday Cake Robyn and colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  Isn't she cute?  I think this image makes a perfect birthday card for a little princess.  Of course I added some ribbon...well, I did have to follow my own challenge, right?  I made a little rosette by gathering one edge of my ribbon and added a button to the center.  I tied narrow ribbon through all my buttons, too.  I used plenty of Glamour Dust and stickles on my card and I also used one of my Martha Stewart border punches.

I decided to finish the inside of my card and added some balloons.  The sentiment is by Ladybug Crafts Ink.  You can find all of the Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps here.  And remember, if you order before the end of November, Kerry is offering a 15% discount off your total order.  Just be sure you use discount code "CB2010".
