Ladybug Crafts Ink - For a Special Lady

Hi there friends, how are you? I'm doing great!!

This week at Ladybug Crafts Ink (LCI), we are celebrating "For a Special Lady" using the gorgeous Nikki - take a few minutes and check out what the design team has created, talk about some BEAUTIFUL cards!!!

I'm using "Make a Wish Nikki"; one of my all-time favorite images from Ladybug Crafts Ink!! And I did water coloring for the first-time using some crayons I've had on hand for YEARS... I did not use watercolor paper and will remedy that immediately, but for the first time, I'll take it. And don't you LOVE that blue eye shadow? LOL, didn't we ALL go through a phase of wearing blue eye shadow? I know my oldest daughter did - thankfully she can instruct the younger daughter on how uncool it is. HA!!

I mounted the image with 2 layers of foam adhesives so it's really popped up! I added a piece of Doodlebug "Take Note" polka dot paper with a semi circle cut out - nothing goes to waste, I used the other portion of the circle on the inside of the card (see below).



A big Hibiscus Burst bow, some embossing and a bit of clear Wink of Stella sparkle on the frosting. The polka dot strip across the bottom? That's the decorated envelope, I have washi tape that matches the dots perfectly, just a bit larger. Swoon! Love me some washi tape.

Thanks for popping in - hope you have a great week. And don't forget to take some time to join the fun and create a card "For a Special Lady" and you have any LCI images, go ahead and get them inky while you're at it! See you again soon!

Hugs,
