Wow, this is a busy day for posts. Just to try and make life a little simpler, Iím combining several things with this one card. First, itís my day to post over on the DRS blog , so all images are DRS Designs . Second, itís the first Thursday in April so itís time for another Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge andThis Picture was our inspiration. Third, I used the sketch challenge for my layout.
I stamped the two sizes of dotty circle frames using a rainbow pad and cut them each out using Spellbinders circle Nesties. I used the same two circle Nesties to cut and inside and outside curve for the stamped semi circle greeting. Two color of green chalk ink were used to stamp the dotty leaf on the green band and a coral chalk ink was used to stamp the ladybug background on the large guava layer.
Swiss dots were embossed on the white panel and I used a coral marker to color each raised dot. A scallop dot border punch was used on the narrow guava panel and I added two green faux brads and dots all around with a white gel pen. The ladybug & flower were stamped twice, colored with Prismacolor pencils and cut out. I used a stylus on the back of one flower to add dimension before attaching it on top of the base image. Stickles was added in the center.
Thanks so much for looking and we'd love for you to join our challenge! Just put DDIC in your keywords. Please visit my blog for all the links and closeups. The Write Stuff
