One Stitch at a Time Challenge 213

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want you to keep it simple. Other than that, any theme is fine!

Our sponsor this week is:
This week, I got to work with a sweet set of images from BBCakes called Babybug.

Now, I got a little carried away with this, because I made my card, and then went to post it on the DT blog and realised I'd forgotten that I was supposed to 'keep it simple'. So, I've got two cards to show you!

First, the one that actually follows the challenge!

I combined several of the image in the set - Babybug herself as well as two sets of flowers, the snail, dragonfly and the ladybird. (Can you spot the ladybird? It's so tiny it's almost invisible!). I coloured the combined image with Promarkers, adding some texture to the grass. I cut the image and mat using a Spellbinders die, and used some paper from a pad I've had for ages called 'Picnic in the Park'. I finished the card with a felt embellishment I bought ages ago from the Pound shop!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

LCI where anthing goes,
Feeling Crafty where they want 'one for the girls',
Kreativeinkauf where the theme is 'In my Garden',
Sarah Hurley where anything goes,
Bastel-traum where the theme is 'summer',
Crafty Girls where anything goes,
Crafty Little Fairies where the theme is 'in the garden',
Suzie B's where they want clean and simple.

And this is the second card:

So, it's the same image combination, again coloured with Promarkers, although I kept to more pastel shades. The paper is from a Me to You pad, and I cut the image and mat using dies from Spellbinders. The butterflies are alnso Spellbinder dies, and I've used a combination of normal card and Craft Creations Sparkle paper. The dragonfly is made using a Sizzix die and a similar combination of card and paper. I finished with some liquid pearls on the dragonfly, Babybug's antennae and the butterflies.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers where the theme is: 'No Sentiment',
Country View Crafts where the theme is 'nature's glories' (hope my butterflies and dragonfly count),
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge where anything goes,
Flat Friends where they want die cuts,

Sister Act where anything goes,
Craftitude where it's 'die-licious',

I hope you can join us this week.

I just love you have two very different cards with the same digi Josephine and they are both equally fabulous, I honestly can't say which I like most, the pinks and blues of the lower one or the ladybird matching the spotty wing of the top one. Totally fabulous :) :) :) Big hugs, Jane xxx

This post shows how versatile stamps can be. They are both adorable but look completely different because of your colour palette and paper choices. Wonderful! Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/That's Die-licious challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. I hope we see you again soon.
