Totally Ladybug Tuesday's Color Wheel

Good morning everyone!  Today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over on the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Caz, our guest DT member for November, chose our challenge this week and she picked the color wheel.  She asked that we design a card using the color that is opposite our favorite color on the color wheel...hmm, have I confused you yet? 

My favorite color is red so when you look at the color wheel, green is on the opposite side of the wheel.  So I had to use green for my card today.  The image I used for my card is that cute little Cheeky Jack, and you can find him here.  I used my copics and prismacolor pencils to color my image and used Glossy Accents on his tongue.  I added a button with a twine bow...I figured since the bow was from twine it would be OK for a boy's card.  I have such a hard time making male cards.  If I can't add ribbon, lace, flowers or glitter, then I really struggle with the finishing touches lol!  I added some brads and my sentiment and my card was finished.  This is what I call a clean and simple card...no frills or frou-frou (is that really a word?)

Now, be sure you stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see what the amazing DT has created this week.  If you joined us last week for Michele's sketch, thank you!  I hope you'll be able to join in our challenge this week, too...there's a chance to win a prize.

During the month of December, Kerry is offering a Buy One - Get One 1/2 price sale.  And if you buy two stamps, you get two at 1/2 price.  If you've been wanting to treat yourself to some new LCI stamps for Christmas, now is the time.  I mean, think about it...you pick out and order your own stamps and you know you're gonna love that Christmas gift!  It's one size fits all and no standing in a long line to return something you don't like, right?  You can check out all of the Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps here.
