It's TLT - Michele's Challenge - Sketch

Hello and happy Tuesday...TLT to be exact! Yes it's that time again :-D Thank you to everyone who has entered our challenge from last week. You have all done an amazing job and it was so hard to pick the winner and the top 3. Make sure you check out if it's you on the Challenge Blog.

The winner of last weeks challenge was Pami. Her prize was a stamp of her choice and a 2 week Guest Designer post and today is her first week. Make sure you head over to her blog and see her beautiful cards and projects. I can promise you won't be disappointed!

This week it's our lovely Michele's turn and she chose the sketch below (not sure why it's blurry?).


I really enjoyed doing this sketch as the last couple sent me into a right tizzy! Once I chose Dancing Nikki for my image I was off lol.

I LOVE colouring in Dancing Nikki (this would be a fantastic image for a prom card!)...her dress is gorgeous and floaty. I chose to use Swarovski crystals for the borders. You can't really tell the colour but they're Khaki and of course look so much better IRL :-D

 I decided to hold back on the glitter (yes this is me holding back lol)...I was so tempted to glitter up her whole dress but just sparkled the top and a little bit at the bottom.

I {heart} this flower! I saw one on Meahni's blog a few weeks back and my heart skipped a beat...I knew I had to make them too. It's a Die-namics die from MFT and so much fun to make. The first couple are a bit fiddly but once you get the hang of it they're easy. You can just about see the sparkle I sprayed on it.

Make sure you visit the other Ladybugs blogs to see their interpretation of the sketch...they're all flabulous!! Sue has got something extra special :-D

You've got exactly one week left to take advantage of the 15% discount using the code CB2010 in the Ladybug Crafts Ink online store. They would make a great stocking stuffer and don't forget there's free postage WORLD WIDE for orders over £20!!

That's it for today. I hope you enjoy the Lovely Ladybugs cards and will leave some Ladybug Love :-D

Thanks for stopping by...have a great TLT!

Catch ya later x

Oh this is gorgeous Kerry, love the colours, love the sparkle and that flower is so pretty. Does it sit out far from the card though?

Anita said...

Beautiful card, Kerry. I love the purple and the sparkle is just perfect. That's is a gorgeous flower. Hmm, I think I bought that MFT die a while back and I've never used it...I think I better go dig it out and have a try.
