Hi all, i hope you are all having a fab weekend! Mine has been quite chilled! Yesterday i went to a 'duck race' with my friend Lucy - which was a new experience and then i had a lovely visit from my sister Jamie and cousin Kirsty. My hubby was out on another stag do last night and my friend Suz came round to watch the eurovision and we had a pig out on chinese takeaway, washed down with wine and peach schnapps and cherry 7up (we accidently order cherry 7up rather than regular - but it actually worked quite well!!) Anyway today i'm just having fun crafting!!
Today i want to share with you my entry into the Daring Cardmakers Challenge, which this week is 'The Darling BUGS of May!' I was quite excited about this one, and may even enter more than one card this week as i love the theme so much!! Here's my card:
The card base is 'Wild Wasabi', on that I used the same colour ink and the leave stamp from the 'Happiness Shared' set. The ladybird has been created from two 'Top Note' Dies - using 'Basic Black' and 'Real Red' cardstock. (I have only recently brought this - it's a Stampin' Up! exclusive Die - and it SO versatile - keep checking out my blog to see all the different things you can do with the 'Top Note'! The ladybirds dots have been punched using the '1/2" Circle Punch' and have been raised with 'Dimensionals'. His head has been created with the '1-3/4" Circle Punch', his eyes with scraps of 'Whisper White' and the '1/2" Circle Punch' and i've used the eye circle from 'Owl Punch' to craete the centre of this bugs eyes!!
I think this card is worthy of going to the Ugly Bug Ball, but i'd love to know what you think!!! Thanks for visiting my blog!
