Delightful Sketches and Challenges - Kids !





We have a challenge today at Delightful Sketches and Challenges with the theme of 'kids'. Interpret this how you like. Our sponsor this week is the Simon Says Stamp Company who are generously offering a $20 spend in their store.



I've made a 3D card using the lovely Lara Ladybug and sentiment from Digital Delights, coloured with Promarkers. The card is made with 2 sheets of 5 x 7" card. The background card is stamped with some flowers in Pine Needles Distress ink, and coloured in part with a red promarker, on top of green masked fields and blue masked sky using a Big and Juicy ink pad. I've added a little pop out of a flower with a ladybird. The ladybird stickers are by Martha Stewart. The front panel has been cut out with an oval nestie and inked with a few shades of Distress inks. I've added a couple of stamped images from Personal Impressions in Pine needles Distress ink, and some more ladybirds, and then the lovely Lara Ladybug and sentiment. The base flower is cut with my Cricut, and the top flower is Bazzill, fastened with a black gem brad from Dovecraft.. The 2 cards are scored at half inch and 1 inch, and glued together with the pop out between the 2. The ladybirds are glittered and I've also added some Stickles to the hearts on Lara Ladybug. I had so much fun making this card, especially as I love ladybirds, and Lara is so cute. You can get her from here.

I'm entering this card into a few challenges:

Creative Card Crew Challenge - It's a celebration
Digital Tuesday Challenge 48 - Scallops - (oval scallop nestie and cricut scallop flower)
Pollycraft Challenge 35 - Distressing (used lots of distress inks)
Paper Jewels Challenge 1 - Cute and Girly
Pile It On Challenge 8 - Lucky Me (I've used lots of green)
Practical Scrappers - use chalks or inks

I'll be back soon with my DT card for the new C.R.A.F.T. Challenge which this week is Mothers Day/Flowers.
