Totally Ladybug Tuesday - My Challenge!!

Hi!!  It's a rather exciting day for me today, as it's Tuesday which means that  it is time for another challenge over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog (aka, Totally Ladybug Tuesday!), and this week it's my turn to set the challenge!!  (breathe Sue, breathe!!) 

So I would love to see some Christmas Sparkle on your projects - easy huh!!

Without further ado... here's my card...

I adore this years paper release from Bo Bunny, they are gorgeous!!  I've used White and Purple Organza, Lilac Grosgrain and white twine which has got little bits of organza tied at intervals.  The snowflakes were cut on my Cricut (thanks to Pinky for the tip - a good scrub at the cutting mat with a baby wipe bought back its sticky - hurrah!!) A few amethyst coloured gems and a charm finished this off :-)

I knew from I set this challenge I wanted to use Snow Covered Log Ruby - I love her and her counterpart Daydreaming Ruby, they are both such a joy to colour and seem to work no matter what your colourscheme is - have a look here for Ruby all in greys and silvers.

Image - Snow Covered Log Ruby - Ladybug Crafts Ink,
Papers - Bo Bunny; CS - Purple Mirri, Bazzill Bling
Misc - Ribbons; Gems; Charm, Glamour Dust, Diamond Dust
Other - Copics; Cricut; Deckled Rectangles Nesties

I hope you will be able to give this challenge a go - you don't have to use a LCI stamp, but we love it when you do (and you could add to your collection if you win this weeks prize!!) :-)  Please take a moment to check out the other DT's blogs by clicking on their links in the sidebar.   Oooh, and before I forget there is still time to get 15% off all the LCI stamps - just enter the code CB2010 when checking out

I'd like to enter this card in these challenges

Thanks for stopping by

Sue xx
