Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 2 - Anita's Challenge: Ribbons

Good Morning!! 

This week at the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog we have been challenged by the lovely Anita to use Ribbon on our project, now I don't know about you but I adore ribbon so this was my kinda challenge :-)

Here's my card

After yet another hectic week at work I needed to de-stress so I have distressed my papers - it really is quite calming!!  They are by My Mind's Eye, and I love them!!

I used Winestool Nikki, and coloured her with Copics, added stickles to her shoes and the bubbles coming out of her glass which has got a coat of glossy accents, she's got red and clear gems as jewellery :-), and the edges are sponged with some distress inks

I've used three ribbons on this card - a satin, a lace and a fancy black ribbon.  I couldn't resist using a pewter coloured ribbon slider and heart that have been in my stash for ages!!

Stamps - Winestool Nikki, Sentimental Numbers, both Ladybug Crafts Ink
Cream and Black CS, MME Papers; Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Raw Silk Pearls; Ribbon Slider; Heart charm; Black Fancy Ribbon, Mink Lace and Camel satin ribbons all from stash.  Stickles; Glossy Accents; Antique Linen Distress Ink; Tuxedo Black Momento; Copics

I hope you have time to check out what the rest of the DT have done for this challenge, and I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!!

Thanks for stopping by

Sue xx

P.S.  Please can I enter these challenges - thank you!!

Paper Romance - Everything but the Kitchen Sink (I think this one more than qualifies!!)

Beautiful card Sue, I love the fancy black ribbon and lace always seems to add a touch of sophistication and elegance to pieces doesn't it!? Winestool Nikki is looking gorgeous will her Dorothy like shoes and sparkling jewellery! Beautiful card x

Kerry said...

As Winestool Nikki is one sophisticated chic the papers, ribbon and embellies are perfect Sue. If distressing is that calming I should try it more often! Love this xx
