Totally Ladybug Tuesday

Good morning everyone!  Today is Totally Ladybug Tuesday and that can only mean one thing...we have a new challenge for you over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Our challenge was set by Gaelle this week and she asked us to use pearls on our projects.

I decided to use Puppy Surprise Ruby and make a Christmas card.  I colored my image with copics and prismacolor pencils and used Glamour Dust on Ruby's wings.  I used Cuttleug's Swiss Dots and Snowflakes embossing folders for my background, and my Nestabilities to make a round frame to surround Ruby.  I used various punches for my snowflakes and sprinkled them liberally with Glamour Dust.  I added a pearl to the center of each of the snowflakes.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and visit my blog.  Please be sure to stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog so you can check out the gorgeous projects made by the DT!  And don't forget that Kerry is having a fantastic sale this month at Ladybug Crafts Ink.  I hope you have time to play along in our challenge this week.
