Totally Ladybug Tuesday

It's a Totally Ladybug Tuesday which can only mean one thing ... we have a new challenge posted for you over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  Our lovely Hayley chose the challenge this week and the theme she asked us to use is ... Love is in the Air

I used Nikki and Ben Under the Mistletoe  for my card today.  I love it when I can use stamps for more than their intended purpose.  By simply masking off the mistletoe, this stamp makes a perfect image for a Valentine's Day card.  I used copics and colored pencils to color my image.  I added a little stickles to the flower on Nikki's hat and used my Stardust pen on Ben's watch for some sparkle.  I outlined my heart sentiment with Glamour Dust.  I used some white crocheted lace and a little red heart-shaped button to finish my card.

Please be sure you visit the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see the beautiful projects the rest of the DT created.  I hope you find some time this week to play along with us in our challenge. 

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
