Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 27 - Black/white plus one other

Good Morning and welcome to this weeks Ladybug Crafts Ink aka Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge!

This week it is the turn of the lovely Hayley and she has asked us to create a project with

Black, White plus one colour

I chose green, and then immediately regretted my decision, but I have loads and loads of green papers and CS and I am determined to use some of it up, so persevered and I am so glad I did, because I really like how it turned out!!

Anyway, without further ado, here's my card


I used the lovely sketch at Crafts For Eternity, perfect for me because you know how I like my layers!!



I've coloured Daydreaming Ruby with copics and then added stickles to her shoes, trim of her dress and wings.  I've added a dot of Glossy Accents to the ladybug sitting on the tree branch she is using as a seat!  I've used my lacy circles die to sit her on, and a Marianne swirl and various flowers 

You can just make out in the picture that I have run the double dot CS through my ribbler to give it a bit of dimension!  The white suede ruffle ribbon has been tied in a knot, and I have fixed a metal charm and flower and a gem to it. 


I've used a right hodge podge/eclectic mix (depending on your point of view!!) of papers for this card - the black and white spotty paper is from my stash, and I don't know who it is by (sorry!), the green dotty is Bo Bunny Kiwi Double Dot, the black/white floral paper is from an "It's The Little Things" pad, and the Green print paper is the reverse of a Bo Bunny Peacock Lane paper, the white/black script paper is "Posh: Butterfly Script" by Theresa Collins.

I'd like to enter these challenges please

Thanks for stopping by, I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations!  If you have time, why not see what the rest of the DT have created for this challenge - links to each are on the sidebar :-)

Love it Sue! All that glittery goodness is wonderful! The ribbon you used almost looks like a pair of wings also, that is what I thought you did when I first saw it and I thought that was a great idea, even if that wasn't what you did! Lordy that went round and round didn't it?
