LCI - Red & White (St. George)

Well, I live on"this" side of the big pond and have NO CLUE what St. George's Day is, but in honor of it, Loveable Lisa chose the colors RED AND WHITE!

Yes, red and I white I can do as our daughter is a HUGE Boomer Sooner fan (yep, that's their colors), AND this little girl is turning 15 this weekend so I went in a totally different direction than the rest of the team (no surprise really - HA) and made her a little birfday card. Yes, birthdays are pronounced birfdays at my house!

Here's a picture of our youngest daughter this past weekend; she and her besties had a "photo shoot" on their bucket list, so for promotion, all the families went together and made the photo shoot happen - it was a complete blast. This picture was taken in our driveway, but the 'real' photos will be up on Facebook (Michele Hibler Greenwood or you can catch a few of the pics over on Instagram, whimsical_creations) if you want to watch for them. Anyway, this is her promotion dress; the first half of the photo shoot was in their dresses; the other half was casual outfits in which they all coordinated with the color "mint"; each girl wearing one article of clothing that was mint colored. Too cute!


OK, sorry - I obviously got mega distracted...so back to my card. I wanted to do something different than I've ever done before - so I embossed a sunburst from her age outward AND I did the ombre color effect - cool eh? I used Distress Inks for the ombre colors: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door and Fired Brick. Love how it made the sunburst lines really pop!

The entire card was stamped with Sentimental Numbers - 70% off you fools (we call that cray, cray), but really, all cling stamps are 70% off right now!! Anywho, I stamped the large bubble numbers in PTI Pure Poppy and the smaller numbers in Memento Black. I stamped her age on a nestie, colored with Copics (in an ombre effect) and covered in glossy accents - tough to see the ombre effect, but its there.


Ta da - red and white; hope it fits the bill...for the Bugs and our daughter!! :D Join the fun, create a red and white card today and if you use a Ladybug Crafts Ink image, you increase your chances of winning! And if you don't have any? Well, don't forget, there are digis, but again, those cling stamps are all 70% off!

Have a great week; thanks for popping in!!

Hugs,
