Gettin' Krafty over at Ladybug Crafts Ink

Hi friends - how are you doing? We had an absolutely whirlwind weekend filled with a wee bit of stress - glad its over, just need to recuperate...and do the laundry. Not sure WHY the laundry fairies never take care of this issue for me. :D

We have a new bi-weekly challenge up over at Ladybug Crafts Ink - use kraft cardstock. I adore kraft cardstock... a lot...and I love that you can have kraft envelopes too - delightful!

I needed a birthday card and love this Nikki birthday image (70% off in the store - WOWZA); I stamped the image onto kraft cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa and colored her up with a mix of Copics, colored pencils and spica glitter pens. I used some ribbon from Verve Visual which is somewhat kraft-y in color. I added a double bow and tied on a red button with some twine to finish it off.

OK, seriously - did you laugh at the sentiments on the inside? :D

Layout comes from The Pink Elephant - TPE224; cute layout. That's it, I'll see you again this week, until then have some fun...get inky with some kraft cardstock and join the fun at LCI!!

  1. Gorgeous card! The black and white striped dp and red border work so well with the kraft! Love the image and the sentiments inside DID make me laugh!

  2. Gosh, I am really confused about what I should call you, Michelle, M Pee, or Whimsey. Thank you for your comments.
    This is a really brilliant card, forgot I have this image but must rectify it very soon.
    Your colouring is fabulous and love the black and white papers, the die, ribbon and button matches the image superbly.
    Fab card.
