Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Favourite Embellishments

Hello, hope all is well with you and yours?

Good grief, 2nd May already! So it’s an “Ooops!” from me as time just got away from me so I’m a day late with my post for the new challenge at Ladybug Crafts, how rubbish am I!! (Don’t answer that!) Any road up tardiness aside the Ladybug Crafts challenge for May has started and the theme this month is Favourite Embellishments!

Difficult to narrow down I grant you but it was pretty easy for me. I love, love, love my die-cut and punched flowers! If you stand still long enough I’ll glue a die-cut flower to you so watch out!

For my stepper card I chose to use the beautifully ethereal Ceridwen from Mi Ran available here  I just love her gorgeous images!  I started to colour Ceridwen’s hair black then realised I wanted her to have a few aqua streaks but it was a bit late so she has a few random ones scattered here and there! I’d sue the hairdresser myself!! J

Dies:  Tonic nesting rectangles & swirl– Tattered Lace ‘Beautiful Blooms’ & ‘Mini Blooms – Tonic flower punch – MS ‘Leaf Branch’ large punch – X-Cut butterfly mini palm punch
Paper/Card: LOTV ‘Beach Bliss’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Liquid Pearls – gems from stash – Kanban die-cut sentiment

Have a look at the Ladybug Crafts blog here and play along!

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
