Colour combo at Ladybug Crafts Ink


Hmmm, another week and I've been lacking in posts again... apologies.  I've no excuse, just had my lazy head on :-D  Actually I've been spring cleaning the house and washing all those things that you just can't get dry until the weather warms up.  Anyone know how curtains get quite so grubby when they are just haning there... nope me neither!  Anyway, enough waffle

Today's LCI challenge is a colour combo, as it is St George's Day in England today, the colours are red and white.  Not that St. George's Day is particularly celebrated by many people, and certainly not to the scale or enthusiasm of St. Patrick's Day!  But hey, we all like colour challenges and red and white is a great colour scheme, so any excuse!

Here's my card

I used some more of my new Memory Box dies, the heart dies work really well with this cutie of an image - the adorable Sleeping Baby Baby.  I kept the rest of the card fairly simple, well apart from a blooming big bow!

I'm hoping to put my card to good use soon, as my SIL is expecting a baby in early May, so anytime in the next 4 weeks I guess!  Maybe though if she has a boy I'll be making another as perhaps this one is a bit girly!

Anyway, hope you like it
