TLT - Julie's Challenge - Must Include Flowers and Embossing and a New Release!

Welcome to Totally Ladybug Tuesday...just thought I'd give you the full title in case a) you didn't know what TLT stood for or b) you forgot lol. Thank you to everyone who entered our Bingo were fabulicious :-D To see if you were one of the winning entries and to claim your prizes head on over to the Challenge Blog.

We've got a new release today...Floral Delight Too....a fabulicious addition to the Floral Delight family We've also got FIVE Guest Designers, former Ladybug Amanda, Jen, Sandra, Rose and Jo and I hope you'll give them as much Ladybug love as possible. This isn't a blog hop but there are prizes. Six of the DT/GD have be instructed to give one of their commentors a prize of their image which will take place on Monday 22nd October so if you would like to win a Floral Delight Too image make sure you comment :-D

My image is called Coffee Delight and the challenge set by our wonderful Julie is Must include a flower and Embossing. I made my card about two months ago. It was a thank you card for one of the wedding planners at the hotel where Nicole and Ben's reception was held. As I've been so busy lately I thought I was super clever having this card waiting in the wings until I realized the only embossing I have is from the Nestie I cut my image out with hmph! I'm thinking Julie's remark on the Challenge Blog was directed at me...double hmph! No worries...I'm the boss and I can just about get away with it lol.

Here's my card...

Whaddya thunk? I just love this image illustrated by Jan White. She knows I love ladybugs and went a bit crazy lol. I coloured the image with my Copics and added lots of Glamour Dust so it's really sparklicious and Glossy Accents to the ladybugs :-D

This brown and cream check ribbon is just gorgeous and you can get it here
