A monochromatic ladybug challenge

Well, today I am trying to see if I can set up my post to post at a certain time so I don't forget again like I did last week. But just in case there is a sticky note on my computer reminding me! Our challenge this week was a monochromatic card and I have to say I have never done this before but it wasn't nearly as complicated as I thought it would be. Sort of figured Ruby the fairy would look like she rolled in the mud but I think it came out alright. Luckily these clear stamps are some of the best I have ever worked with and the detail when you stamp with them is great so even a little mud might have been okay. Really, I hate clear stamps that smear or miss spots but I have never had that problem with the ladybug stamps. The worst part of the card is I missed a spot on my flower when I glimmermisted it. But you don't see that, even though I told ya! And now you are gonna look for it I bet!

I'm sorry but I don't remember who the paper is by but the butterfly is a MS punch that I glittered the heck out of. There is a bit of crocheted lace at the bottom, some viva decor pearls on the saying and a MFT die for the background of the image. Not too shabby if I do say so myself... Ok, now it is your turn to hop on over to http://ladybugscraftsinkchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ and enter for your chance to win a free stamp. Good luck!
