Time for TLT - This week it's Sue's Challenge!

Hello! Another week has been and gone, my goodness, before we know it Christmas will be upon us (not that I mind because I love Christmas and it's even more lovely now that we have Grace, there's something magical when Christmas involves children!)

This week's challenge has been set by Sue and the theme for us Lovely Ladybugs is Christmas Sparkle!

I've had my idea planned in my head for a few weeks now, I knew which stamp I was going to use, the colours etc. Time has been in short supply this week and I've not been well either. Anyway, I loved this challenge and had great fun producing my card!

Here it is....
I used the beautiful Graceful Skating Ruby (LCI) - I kept colouring to a minimum and just coloured her face/skin/hair, a touch of grey on the mountains, the cute bird and her clothing.
I added blue glitter to her hat and coat, sugar coating glitter to the ice, stickles to the mountains and trees and glamour dust to Ruby's wings - LOTS of sparkle!!!
I used Bo Bunny Double Dot Cardstock in Powder Blue and Dark Denim (there are 5 shades which I'd recommend to use together and all are available HERE they are Frost, Powder Blue, Slate, Dark Denim and Shadow)
I also used some gorgeous epoxy dots and Swarovski by LCI (here) and some gorgeous new Snowflake Trim by May Arts (here) I also used this beautiful soft and shimmery ribbon which I thought was perfect for the theme!

I hope I've done the "sparkle" justice! Remember to take a look at my other Lovely Ladybugs blogs too and leave some Ladybug Love!!! Also check out TLT's Challenge blog and play along with this week's challenge!

That's it from me for now. Hope everyone is well! xx
