Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Black, White + 1 - Hayleys Challenge

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

This week it was the lovely Hayley's turn to choose the challenge and she chose

Black, White & 1.

I had a panic moment as I really thought I was going to have to use pink!! I also panicked as I knew I had no black and white papers in my stash, so a quick trip out and I found some!

I have only used Bride Nikki once before and wasn't 100% happy with how she turned out, so I looked around and found some inspiration to colour Nikki over on Kerry's blog. So I kept her simple, adding Glamour dust to her sleeves and on the ribbons that fall under the bouquet.



I used nesties for the Heart frame around herr, and the main card blank was cut using my large nesties. I added a few flowers in varying sizes. I haven't added a sentiment as when I come to use the card, I will personalise the inside.

Papers  - Papermania
flowers - Wild orchid crafts
Image - Bride Nikki - Ladybug Crafts
Tools - Nesties

Hop on over and join in the Fun at the Challenge Blog and look at the other ladybugs fabulous work!
