Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 13 - Card for a Child

Good morning!!  This week it is the turn of the lovely Pinky to set the challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink and she has chosen

A Card For A Child

Easy peasy huh?  Boy or girl, whatever age, the choice is yours!

Well you'd think it was easy, but for some reason I sat there paper shuffling and going from one stamp to another until I got myself into a total tiz :-(.  At this point my mojo left the building and I was having a bit of a panic, so decided to have a little blog surf to see if anything jumped out at me... and what do you know it did!!

I saw this card over at the Spotted Chick blog, aka Jeanie who is a regular Guest designer at LCI (if you haven't visited her blog before I strongly recommend you have a little peek!) and asked her if I could CASE the layout, and being the lovely person she is, Jeanie said I could :-)  I'd already got the papers sorted, image sorted so got cracking!!

So after much faffing, huffing and Jeanie donning her cape and coming to my rescue here's my card...

The papers are by Prima that I got a couple of years back and are left overs from a scrapbook kit (I'm trying to use up my bits and bobs!!) and I've matted them on tangerine cs then mounted the panel on Kraft cs.  The bow is a gorgeous green satin and the button and square brads are from my stash.

I've coloured Policeman Jack with copics to match the paper and added Glossy accents to his police badges and whistle and stickles to the swoosh and the air coming out of his whistle.

The sentiment on the front and on the inside are both from the Sentimental Numbers set
Sorry for the pictures - my son has been fiddling with my camera and I need to get a better cloth to get the sticky finger prints off the lens (grrr...).

I'd like to enter these challenges please

Looking forward to seeing your creations

Sue xx
