Ladybug challenge... a sketch!

Tuesday again and time for my ladybug card! This week is a sketch by Tams which you can find over at http://ladybugscraftsinkchallengeblog.blogspot.com. Remember you can use any stamp now to win and there is a free stamp up for grabs plus the chance to be picked as one of the top three and be able to display the ladybug banner on your blog. My card today uses Magnum and some new of the My Minds eye paper, I believe this one is Gertie plus some brads from the Mattie line. Ribbon was hanging on my wall, no idea where it came from! I applied viva decor pearl pen drops to the side of my design but there was a cream color and you could barely see them so I sprinkles some glitter on them and voila! brown glitter pearl thing a ma bobs! Technical aren't I? Hey, anyone going to the Akron Ohio stamp show next weekend? I can't wait to get my hands on some more new stuff and hop on over to Archivers while I am there.

Ok, that is is for now, I need to head out to work. Lets see what you got guys!
