Birthdays at Ladybug Crafts Ink.....

Hi everyone, its time for another fab challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink and this fortnight its the lovely Michelle's turn to choose and she has chosen a lovely easy challenge for you...
Birthdays
So we would love to see all your fabulous creations....
So this is the card that was supposed to have more stitching on but the machine went wrong whilst I was making it.....  There was supposed to be a line of red stitching outside the blue on the image and the blue paper was supposed to be edged with red stitching.....  Oh well....

I coloured the image with copics.
The papers and twine were freebies with a magazine and the buttons are from my stash.  
The sentiment at the bottom is with the image stamp and the other sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.





I would love for you to come and join in the fun over at our challenge.
You dont need to use a Ladybug Image but we do love it when you do...

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CES Challenges - Button It
BunnyZoe Crafts - Ribbon or twine
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations - Bold and Bright
