Totally Ladybug Tuesday ~ Animals ~ Pinky style!

Time for another totally ladybug tuesday! 
This week our challenge was chosen by the fabulous Pinky!! 

She chose a theme of Animals

I went a little different, as most of LCI's stamps have an animal on them, so instead of using Magnum, or Buttercup, I used a Nikki stamp. 

I inked up Mermaid Nikki again. I paper pieced her fin using papers from Cosmo Crickets Salt air stack. You can't see the paper piecing in the photo but it looks much nicer IRL, I covered lightly in glitter, mounted onto a label nestie. I used my new MFT die (I blame Mary J for making me buy this!) Added some ribbon, and a computer generated sentiment and 3 small cream pearls to the top corner.


Hope you like it!! 

Hop on over to the challenge blog and join in the fun, and leave a little ladybug love for the talented ladybugs!!
