The Ladybugs are Making Flowers

Good morning to all of you.  Since it's Tuesday that means we have a new challenge for you over on the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  This week our lovely March guest designer, Amanda, chose the theme and she asked that we make our own flowers


I used Shopping Nikki and colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I used a metallic pen on her jacket buttons and belt buckle, and  paper-pieced her shopping bags  I used a Fiskars border punch and added some ribbon.  I made my flowers with my EK Success flower punches and added a pearl inside each one. 



Be sure to stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see what the super-talented DT created this week.  I hope you find time to make your own flowers and play along in our challenge this week.  Remember, you can find Shopping Nikki and all the other fantastic Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps here.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.  I hope you can stop by again tomorrow as I'll have another card to share with you.
