TLT - Anything Goes

It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday and we have an "easy" week - anything goes.  Won't you join us, always a flabby Ladybug Crafts Ink stamp to be won!

Before I move on to my creations (check that out - plural!!); I want to let you know that next week is a TLT blog hop with an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G surprise, please be sure to check back!!

OK, I'm working really hard to build up my supply of cards and birthday cards are always a must, so I created two - same basic layout, just some different colors - SO.MUCH.FUN!!!

I used Our Crafts Lounge layout (OCLDT44), just love the simplicity of the layout.  I colored Nikki with Copics, used some leftover BG paper and away we went!  I embossed the Happy Birthday on the "blue" card to help it pop off the DP.  On the other, I added 3 PTI buttons for a nice change.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you will join our challenge this week!  Hugs, ~M.
