Eyes Down With The Ladybugs!

Well, it's Tuesday and the last Totally Ladybug Tuesday Challenge of 2011,so what better way to round of a crafting year than a game of Bingo with your mates!  It doesn't matter where you are in the world,you can mix it up with the Ladybugs and have some fun!
All you need to do is choose a line and create a masterpiece using your choice,if you're feeling really daring,you can even go for a full house as some of the ladybugs have done.

I chose to use the line "Buttons, Flowers and Embossing" to create my card using the one and only Magnum and Lily Digi! This card was actually for the Queen Ladybug herself, Kerry who's birthday it was last Friday, I hope she's finally received it as I know the fleet of vans got delayed delivering her birthday goodies.

I used my nesties to create a frame which I embossed before raising with foam pads

I coloured up Magnum and that cheeky Lily using Copics,added stickles to the party hats and candles and cut the image out.

I couldn't decide which buttons to use in the centre of my flower so went mad and used 3,adding a little stickles to the largest and threading them together with some string. I also added stickes to the swirls on my paper.

The flowers were white so I used copics to change the colour to suit the papers.

I added some gel pen stitches and decorated the inside to match the front.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Corrosive Challenge 139,Anything but Christmas,
Stampalot December,Bingo.Buttons,Flowers,Stickles,
Secret Crafter 164,All creatures great and small,
Don't forget you still have time to take advantage of the "stamp of the month" offer!
Thanks for stopping by,
