Ladybug Tilda / Basic Grey Challenge / Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge

Happy Monday!

The Basic Grey Challenge is a sketch by Martine. Here is her sketch...


...and here is my card...


Stamps: Ladybug Tilda (Magnolia)
Paper: Two Scoops (Basic Grey), Not Quite Navy, Pink Pirhouette, Mint Medley (retired).
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink
Accessories: Creative Memories Cutting System (circles), lace (from Walmart), Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Oak Leaf Punch, Branch Punch, mini roses, Sizzix Architectural Accents, flat-back pearls, pink 1/4" ribbon, jump rings, charm.


I am still playing with distress inks. I just love Ladybug Tilda in pink. She is so adorable!


The monthly challenge for Just Magnolia is a special technique presented by Mindy Baxter and is folded lace borders. I used this technique for my lace border around my circle. 

I will be on a break this week, focusing on coloring some images, but check back next week to see what is new.
