Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge #17

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's time for another challenge over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  It was my turn to choose the challenge this week and I picked Stitching - faux or real.  So as you can see, it's an easy challenge this week.

I used Cupcake Cutie - Cherry on Top on my card this week.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and added Glossy Accents to the cherry.  I added some stickles to the flower in her hair and added Glamour Dust to the cupcake frosting.  I stitched the edges of all my papers.  Then I used a Bazzill In Stitch'z template and green embroiderly floss to add  some accent stitching.  My sentiment is from the Sentimental Numbers set. 

If you played in our blog hop or challenge last week, be sure to stop by Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to see if you were a winner.  You'll also want to check out the beautifully stitched projects by the rest of the talented DT.  I hope you find time to play along in our challenge this week.

Thank you for stopping by.
