Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

Morning to you all! 

It must be Tuesday again as we are here with out 2nd ever Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! 
The girls have all been busy Ladybugs creating wonderful works of art, and as yet I still haven't seen any of them as we keep them a secret until Tuesdays!! 

This week was lovely Lisa's in house challenge and she chose a sketch! 


Here is my take on the sketch


The picture could be a lot better, but I was sat for ages waiting for the glitter to dry!! eek! I am now under strict orders from Head Ladybug Kerry that I must add Glamour dust to my shopping list, if only you could buy it from asda! lol 

I chose to use Bride Nikki and make a wedding card, this is only my 2nd ever wedding card which I have made so although I am not 100% happy with it I am assured it is lovely! (we all criticise our cards too much) 
I glittered up the main part of Nikkis dress, and tried to keep the whole card fairly minimal. I inked up a card blank instead of using DP, and ran 2 pieces of it through a cuttlebug folder. I trimmed Nikki around the edges and placed her on a inked Doily. 

Ribbon - from stash (bragain bin in the local town) 
Card blank - Craftwork cards
Gems - ebay
Stamp - Bride Nikki - you can adopt here here
Doily - From my lovely friend Karen or Sarah (they have both sent me some recently!) 
Punch - EK Success

Now pop on over and see the other Ladybugs lovely creations, and remember to leave a little Ladybug love! 



and remember to join us next Tuesday for some more exciting fun ... I am sworn to secrecy (despite the excitement) but I can show you this .... 


Yes thats right, we will once again be hopping all over Blogland to have a celebration on a new range of stamps!!

Love it! I must admit I'm partial to wedding cards, but really... The doily, the perfect sheer on the ribbon with the classy effect added by the pearl, and bride Nikki which is so elegant... Wow!

Beautiful card Tams! The sparkle of the wedding gown is just gorgeous and I really like the inked doily you used behind Nikki.
