Totally Ladybug Tuesday - card for a child


(Please scroll down for my post for Totally Ladybug Tuesday)

It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday!  (The post title might have given that one away..., lol!)  Today, the marvellous Pinky is challenging us to make a card for a child!  There are so many child themed stamps at Ladybug Crafts Ink that I found it difficult to choose the one for my card!  I ended up with Jack and his Wagon as he's having so much fun with his cute dog and you all know how much I love my dogs!

 

I also used the LCI Sentimental Numbers - I love that you can colour the numbers in or stamp them on patterned paper for uber co-ordination - cool, huh?

Now hop on over to the LCI challenge blog to see the other inspirational DT creations!





I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Origins
Stamps: Ladybug Crafts Ink Jack and his Wagon and Sentimental Numbers
Mediums: Copics, ProMarkers, Distress Inks Antique Linen
Accents: string from stash
Tools: EK Success border punch, Nestabilities label and rectangle dies

Gorgeous papers and a fun image. Great idea to have front of the card slightly smaller to reveal the inside.
