Little Love U Bug

Hiya folks!

Almost the weekend - how y'all coping?? Glad you could make it to my little space in cyberworld.

My card today has been made with four challenges in mind, so I'll get straight down to it. First up is the layout, and I followed a sketch from Digital Tuesday for this one. Lovely and simple this sketch, right up my street!! Don't forget you need a digi-image for this challenge, no problem for me, as I design my own!

Next up is the colour which is the challenge at C.R.A.F.T. this week, 'RED'. I know, I know, there is black, white and a bit of yellow in mine, but I needed something to contrast with the red!! Black and Red are one of my many favourite colour combo's (the list keeps on growing), which brings me onto the challenge at Bee Crafty this week: 'Favourite Colour Combo's', plus a digi-image required.

Last but not least is the challenge at Crafty Creations, whose theme this week is 'Valentine or Love'. My little Ladybird just fits the bill there. The image is named 'LoveUBug' and is available for purchase in my blog shop, Delicious Doodles.

I printed it out a few times, then coloured with watercolour pencils and layered with foam pads. The spotty background (Funky Hand - Salt and Pepper) is printed onto red cardstock, as was the border (MyGrafico - Art Deco Borders) across the centre. The heart paper on the left (MyGrafico - Valentine Damask Overlays) is printed in red on white card, and I have added some ink round the edges. The three black brads are from the stash, and the sentiment is computer generated.

OK then, lunchtime is approaching, and I need to do some dreaded HW - ta-ta for now folks!
