Anything Goes at Ladybug Crafts Ink

Morning all, back to normality and back to work......
On the bright side its time for another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink and the challenge this week is anything goes which will give you all the chance to use that lovely new stash that you have hopefully received for Christmas.......... Yay.....
I used the cute Daydreaming Ruby for my card and coloured her with copics - also adding stickles to her wings....
The papers are from First Edition Birdsong.
My something new is my fab sewing machine which I adore and therefore am stitching on anything which doesnt move at the moment!!! lol.....
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the flowers and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts.





So come and join in the fun over at Ladybug Crafts Ink, you dont have to use a Ladybug image but there is a fab excuse to do so right now as for the whole of January the cling stamps are HALF PRICE!!!!!!!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Something Old, Something New (Papers are old and stitching is new - new sewing machine)
Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes
