So onto my card for this challenge;

The image is a Limited Runs digistamp - Ladybug swirl.  It is sooo cute I just love ladybugs ;o)
I coloured it with Pro markers.  The papers are from Papermania - they're from my stash so I have no idea what they're called.
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley embossed in pearlescent purple powder.
The shapes are all cut with Spellbinders nesties.
The ribbon is actually seam binding that started out as cream but I distressed it with worn lipstick to match in with the pastel theme.   And the cute ladybug charm is one I've had for ages and where I began with this card actually as it was pale pastel blue so I did the colour scheme to tie in with the charm!
Finally I cut a couple of nestie shapes to pop on the inside of the card as I hate to leave the inside blank.
So I hope you like this card - another different one for me because of the colours but I think it's quite a cute one!
Back soon
