I had some cards left over from a Club Stamp kit so I thought I better put them to use, the magenta colored paper matched the Purely Pomegranate ink pad perfectly so I used that ink to stamp the image. I then colored it in with my watercolor pencils and layered it on a scrap of blue cardstock. Finished it off with a piece of ribbon that matches the cardstock and voila! Not too bad I would say eh? heheheh I also forgot that I used Fresh Fillers from SU with Versamark Ink for the background on the card.

I am looking for designers to send me their designs for an adoption notice. It must be for a chinese baby girl and must incorporate a ladybug theme. This challenge is open until the end of May. All entried received will be entered to receive some blog candy, picture of candy will be posted by the end of the month. Please snail mail or email the cards to me with a supply list so that I will be able to re-create them. Design should be easy to reproduce for approximately 50 cards.
Here is a card that I finally came up with after a short hibernation. I used the Artfully Asian and Winged Things sets from Stampin' Up. I used Earth Element colours and think it looks pretty good. I used the French Script SU background stamp and the Artfully Asian and embossed it in Silver Lame. I added quite a few layers of paper to use more colour.
