Double Trouble With The Ladybugs.

Before I start I need to apologise for the photo quality here, I took it around a month ago and don't ask me why but I must have had a brain storm when I used a blue background!

It's the lovely Laurie who is hosting this fortnight's challenge at "Totally Ladybug Tuesday" and her theme of choice is
It doesn't necessarily need to be two images, can be two buttons, two flowers etc, so long as there's two of something, Laurie will be delighted to see it!

I used two Magnum stamped images, Tiptoeing Lily Magnum and Add on Magnum I coloured one kitty a Tabby and one Ginger.

The numbers were cut using the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook. I added a scalloped circle to the back of my card to write the message on, three tiny punched flowers and three little pearls.

The bunting was hand cut, stamped using tiny alphabet stamps and inky stitching added, some gorgeous swarovski crystals were added to the punched flowers along with some twists of ribbon.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Bitten By The Bug, Birthday and pearls,
Forever Friends 38, Anything Goes,
Lexis 67, Birthday,
MIM94, Anything goes,
Catered Crop, Bunting.

Thanks for stopping by,
