No design papers over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

This week over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday, the lovely Julie has set the challenge of no design papers!  Well, some of the team panicked a bit over this one, we are so dependent on our gorgeous papers!  So here is my make...

 


This is one of my all time faves - Nikki and buttercup Running in Snow!  I used Doodlebug glitter cardstock for the background and used a checked ribbon to stop it from being too boring!  I created an acetate window which I stamped white snowflakes on and then added punched out snowflakes in the window - I think I over did it as you can barely see poor Buttercup!!  Here's a closer look...



Nikki and buttercup Running in Snow is also our Stamp of the Month which means you can buy her for half price during October - what a great price!


You can see more gorgeous DT inspiration of Nikki and buttercup Running in Snow on the main post here - you're gonna love them!


That's it from me but I'll be back later with my By LoRi Designs DT card!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Doodlebug glitter cardstock
Stamps: Ladybug Crafts Ink Nikki and buttercup Running in Snow, CC Designs snowflake stamp
Mediums: Copics, white chalk ink
Accents: American Craft ribbon
Tools: Fiskars border punch, Stampin Up label die

A beautiful card and so unusual in pink! Can I just mention to you that I've tried contacting Ladybug three or four times by email but had no response. I was a runner up on the blog hop. Not sure what is happening to my emails. Hazel x

Great use of the ribbon, really frames the acetate window!

Isn't it funny, I have only realised today that the magority of Christmas cards I have made this year (except for challenge ones) I haven't used any DP's, must have spent too much time on the LIM challenges lol.
I think this is a brilliant card, love the brown and pink.
