Totally Ladybug Tuesday ~ Flowers ~ Michele Style!

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!!! But before I start what did you think to the Wrinkleys? I love them and the ladybugs rocked!! 

This week it was Michele's turn to choose the challenge and she chose Flowers!! We want to see flowers on your project, either on the image, the paper, embellishment, or ones you have made yourself! 

I decided to try something new, I saw this FAB milk carton Pami made last week and I had to give it a try, I have had a template for a couple of years but never tried it, so I dusted off the printer and gave it a whirl!! 


The milk carton is quite small in size as you can see from the picture so I decided to use the Magnum Add ons which you can get here. I inked up Lily and added a paper pieced balloon which I finished with crackle accents. I made my own flowers using a Dienamics rolled rose die and the leaf is cut from a magnolia die. I filled it with Jellybeans and it will be given to my son on his birthday on Friday!

So what do you think? 

Hop on over to the challenge blog and join in the fun, you never know you may just win!!

That is adorable and using Lily was a great idea! Glad I won't be around after your son eats all his jellybeans, can you say sugar high?!
