Ladybug Bud

Good morning and welcome to my blog, happy Wednesday.  Last Saturday night my husband and I went to a 1920's evening which was a great night and we all had to dress accordingly, I didn't make a dress but added a few bits and pieces to a dress I already had.  Here's the hair piece I made which will give you some idea.

Congratulations to our winner and top 3 from last week.  Great work everyone and I loved looking at your creativity.

Now, on to this week’s challenge and our fabulous sketch for you to follow…

Sketch # 94

Create your card using this sketch. You can rotate it or flip it – it just has to maintain the essence of the sketch when you create your card.

Don't forget to check the challenge rules, comment on the SSW2 posting for this fortnight and post our sketch on your posting.

Kathie, Your card is GORGEOUS. Great image and love those clothes pins with the ladybug. Perfect paper for the image and beautiful flowers to match. That must have been a hoot of an event that you and your husband went to and that was a great headpiece. Hope you had a blast from the past!

Bobby said...

I love your choice of patterned papers to serve as the background for your beautifully colored flower, Kathie. You've included so many wonderful details. I'm glad you shared your card at Just Us Girls.
