LCI's team challenge!

Good morning everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend and that your week is going well. Today's post is for the Totally Ladybug Tuesday challenge and this week we are all using the same image, Nikki running with Buttercup. It is so interesting to see such different takes on the same image and our challenge this week is, are you sitting down?  No designer paper!   Yikes! Just so you know this is Julie's challenge so blame her if you have any issues with it!  I forgot and have to admit I have the cutest papers all put together and taped down just waiting for this when I remembered the challenge. Boogers!



I tried to go a little rustic with the image but need to add some more color to the image I think. It looks a little too white to me but I needed to get it posted so will do that later. Make sure you hop over and see everyone elses takes on the this challenge and get your card made for your chance to win!

For some reason no dps meant white to me lol. I love this colourful card Amanda:) Sorry I haven't been over much, my patient is very demanding and has lots of thirsty visitors lol.

Love how you've done this one up with the fluff & sparkle on her hat & the trees!!! Super cute image beautifully colored. Glad the new job is going well & how fun to get to go shopping & wear "girl clothes" for a change....

Adorable - love the colors and your coloring! AND I love the use of that wide ribbon - I own that same ribbon, have for a year and STILL have not used it - I don't ever feel like it 'works'; but it looks fantastic here! Fabby bow too!
