Lara Ladybug



It's time for another challenge over at Stamps R Us and the theme for the next two weeks will be 1-2-3...meaning, one image, two patterned papers, and three embellishments!  I can always come up with the three embellishments and one image - but mixing two patterned papers is a toughie.  Maybe that's why it's always best for me to buy paper packs, etc....Anyway, our sponsor is Digital Delights by Louby Loo and she has given the DT precious images to work with.  Be sure and check out her store for cute images.  You have two weeks to enter and the winner will receive a very nice prize package...plus the top three will be awarded a badge to go on their sidebar.  So head on over to Stamps R Us Challenges and enter today.

This little cutie is named Lara Ladybug (from Digital Delights) and I cut her out, popped up another wing, and then colored her with Bic Markers.  The DP is some scraps I had in red.. I embossed the white background and also the square with the image in it...the sentiment is from CTMH, Happy Birthday set - and after adding the ribbon, I ran some red and white Bakers Twine over it.

Thanks for stopping by......and don't forget to check out the Stamps R Us Challenge.

I love everything about this card,the image is adorable, with those eyes, the paper, twine and embossing. How long did it take to cut this out.....??? Tell me you didn't sit and cut out the little antennae? Wow! Love it.
