Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 33 - use red somewhere on your project

Good morning!!

This week at Ladybug Crafts Ink  it is the turn of the lovely Gaelle to set the challenge, she'd like to see...


I decided to use red on the image, which is The Ruffle from the Shoes and Bags collection (you must check out the flip/flops and beach bag image - perfect for summer cards!), and as an accent to these gorgeous MME papers

The all too true sentiment is one of three that come with the image

I accented the ruffle on the shoes and the metallic bits on the bag with glossy accents, and added a length of Antique Gold Lace Velvet, also available from the Ladybug Crafts Ink store.

A Marianne florish and oodles of flowers completed this card... as ever it looks SOOOOO much better in real life than my dodgy photos will ever allow (although I have asked for a light tent thingy for my birthday, so things may improve!!)
