For a special lady...

Good morning, Tuesday again already! That means it's time for a new Totally Ladybugs Tuesday challenge at Ladybugs Crafts Ink. The theme this fortnight is a fabulous one- 'For a special
Lady' -set by my lovely, and very talented friend Julie- believe me her blog is well worth a visit!
For my card I used the Winestool Nikki image- isn't she gorgeous! The card was made for my equally gorgeous 'baby' sister's 40th birthday (40 she looks about 25!!!) this image really looks like her!
 I made an oval side-step card from black textured cardstock
 Nikki is coloured  with copics, her hair is coloured to match my sister's ;), The tag is die cut, numbers were cut on the cricut, a bow, flowers and lots of bling added to finish.
(my sister loved the card!)
Please pop over to Ladybugs Challenge and feast your eyes on the rest of the DTs beautiful cards and we'd love to see what you make for those special ladies!
Have a great day!

  18. The oval side-step is beautiful, and it is so rare that I see it. I think that makes the oval side-step even more beautiful. Love the combination of red, white, and black. I gravitate toward that often. Thank you for joining TTPH this week.
