1st DT Post

I'm so very excited!  This is my 1st DT post for Tammy scrapin corner.  This week our amazing sponsor is Bugaboo stamps 
you know how much I really {heart} their images ;)  This was so much fun for me.

This is challenge #9 and it's show me those punches and/or Die cuts.

I chose for this card to do a card for my mother-in-law.  As my followers know she is dying as we speak from cancer.  This will be her last Mother's day.  So I wanted to create something special for her.  She was such an inspiration for me that I thought I would use my very 1st DT card for her!

  I used both punches and dies on my card and will describe afterwards.
I really love using digis because you can do all sort of cool things with them.  I needed another ladybug to represent us (we are a family of 6).  So I used the 3rd ladybug and reversed it so it would be facing the other ones.  You can see it at the bottom left corner.

I also really stacked my ladybugs.  You can see it better with this picture:
I wanted to have a 3D effect.  Here's the recipe for my card:
  • Ladybugstack image from Bugaboo
  • Sentiment is from Impression obsession
  • I used the Label 13 nestabilities as well as Rose creations for the flowers that I made with crepe paper at the top left corner of the card.  And I broke my cuttlebug "c" plate doing that... :(
  • I also used one of my creative memory border punch it's the middle yellow border
  • I colored them with copics
  • I used a cuttlebug embossing folder 
I followed this sketch:

I really hope that you will join us for this weeks challenge at Tammy scrapin corner it's a great time to use your punches and/or dies ;)  We all love them.  

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Have a great week every one!!!!
