TLT challenge

Our last inhouse challenge today for Totally Ladybug Tuesday! This week our guest designer Ang choose the challenge and its to create your own backing papers. For my card I used the fabulous MARTINI NIKKI stamp which you can get here. For my background papers I used two different stamps. While having a little clear up with my stamp storage last week I came across an old set of stamps from Anna Griffin so decided they would be idea for backing papers. I stamped one sheet of pink card with the butterfly and one sheet with the flourish stripe. Added some black matts to it and a black satin ribbon. I really am pleased with the effect and might be inclined to make more of my own papers in the future. The image is coloured with pencils.
Stamps - Ladybug Crafts Ink, Anna Griffin
Sentiments - ladybug Crafts Ink
Papers - made with stash
Embellishments - ribbon and peel off letters, fancy cut scissors

I hope you have all dropped over to our new challenge blog and entered your name for the candy. It will all be kicking off on 2nd November so you still have time to join.

I am entering this into these challenges:
Crafty Catz - black, white plus one other colours
The Crazy Challenge - tons of shapes
Midnight Madness - followed their sketch (the simpler option)
Scrapbook Sisters - pets galore
Now don't forget to pop over to Kerry's blog and check out all the TLT design team cards.
