Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 9 - Anything Goes

Good Morning and welcome to the first Ladybug Crafts Ink (aka Totally Ladybug Tuesday) challenge of 2011.  This week our theme is...

Anything Goes

And when we say Anything, we mean Anything... so this week we want to see all of your lovely creations, and cos it's an Anything Goes challenge any of the entries is eligible to win the prize, although we love to see Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps used if you have 'em!  As always the top three is open to all, LCI stamp or not :-)

After making seemingly endless Christmas cards I didn't make enough and have had to send some Happy New Ones, and Winestool Nikki seemed perfect for the job.  I wanted it quite blingy but glam so went for a mainly black colour scheme, with a bit or red as an accent.  HB looked at it and said it looked very Moulin Rouge-esque!  I think that was a compliment!!

Without further waffle from me, here's the pictures...





Hope you like it :-)

Supplies
Image - Winestool Nikki, Ladybug Crafts Ink; CS - Black and Red Dotty Bazzill; Papers - Bo Bunny "Alissa Twirls", Doodlebug Black Daydream Glitter paper; Prima Crystal/Pearl Swirl; Velvet Lace ribbon; Copics; Labels 4 Nestabilities; Black and Platinum Stickles; Charcoal Black Chalk Eye; MS Arched Lattice Border Punch; Sentiment - Mo Manning Facebook Freebie

Looking forward to seeing your creations!

Before I go for today, just to let you know that next week we are having a blog hop to celebrate the release of a new range of stamps :-)  There are prizes up for grabs, so why not grab the banner now and pop it on your sidebar and spread the word!


Thanks for stopping by,  Sue xx
