Totally Ladybug Tuesday - show us your pearlies!

No, no, no, don't start taking photos of your teeth for us!!  This week Gaelle has challenged us at the Totally ladybug Tuesday to use pearls on our projects - and a great excuse to use up some of my long forgotten stash!  So what do you think...?





I used Tree Trimming Ruby - isn't she just gorgeous?  I love her whimsical look, she's so so pretty!  I placed the pearls using a Bazzill Basics Jewel template - these are so cool, no more wobbly patterns for me!  I also used Stickles glue glitter on her wings and Just Glitter gold pen on the tree decorations - a little touch of bling!  I couldn't do my usual back stitch as I ran out of that floss so I ended up just doing a running stitch so it doesn't look very good - hey ho, everyone's a critic, lol!!

The other DT cards are - once again - just gorgeous!  Go here to the challenge blog to get your weekly dose of inspiration!  And don't forget, in the shop there is December's special offer of buy one, get one half price!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Memory Box Inc Mistletoe paper pack
Stamps: Ladybug Crafts Ink Tree Trimming Ruby (buy here), CC Designs sentiments
Mediums: Copics, Stickles glitter glue, Just Glitter pen in gold
Accents: lace from stash, Papermania adhesive backed pearls, Bazzill floss
Tools: Nestabilities square and scallop square dies, EK Success border punch and Nestabilities label die (inside card)
