Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  How's your week going?  Mine is going pretty well.  Not a whole lot to talk about or share, so I'll just share my card for this week's challenge for Delightful Challenges.

This week we're playing with Bling & Bows...

I absolutely love this card!  I am very proud.  This is not what I started to create, what I started with didn't turn out so well and with a few other failed attempts it was time to scratch that idea and try again.  I am so glad I did because I love this way more than the idea I had in my head for the other card.

I created this card using a great sketch The Sketchy Challenges.  I flipped the sketch, but it was a lot of fun to work with.

Image:  Lara Ladybug Topper, Ticket Sentiments
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black (Recollections)
Paper:  B&W digi paper (ACOT)
Copics:  100, B05, C5, C7, E000, E00, E02, R11, R27, R29
Tools:  oval cutters (CM), Swiss Dots emb folder, Cuttlebug
Embellishments: Sparles & Gems (Hero Arts), Rhinestones (Recollections), black stitched ribbon (Michaels)
