Totally Ladybug Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday and that means we have another great challenge for you over at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  This week the challenge is to create a project with Christmas sparkle.  I used Nikki and Buttercup Running in Snow, one of my favorite LCI stamps.

I colored my image with Copics and used my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol to do my shading.  I dusted on plenty of Glamour Dust...after all, the challenge is for lots of sparkle!  I used one of Martha's punches and stitched all around my papers. I found these papers hiding in my stash from last year.  They're by October Afternoon and I love their paper.  I added a little red bow and a few sparkly snowflakes to finish my card.

Be sure to head over to Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see what the other super talented ladybugs have created this week.  And don't forget that Kerry is having a great sale on Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps.  I hope you can play along with us in our challenge this week...you just may win a prize!

Thank you all so much for stopping by!
