Ladybug Crafts Ink's First Ever Challenge

Just another quick post as need to do about 3 million things this afternoon and also hoping to fit in a nap -  after all was early morning as I had to go to the dentist - ick ick ick hate it lol but yay didn't have to have anything done so a 6 month reprieve :)

I finally finished my Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Card - only taken 3 days lol but am really pleased with it. The challenge was a sketch with the optional twist to decorate the inside. Now that bit really was a challenge, I've never decorated the inside of a card before, but I think I did OK, added some gems to the front to add some sparkle and to make a change from the glitter and glossy accents, used derwents to colour it to as a change to the alcohol markers, and got shopping Nikki out too - she hadn't been inked in ages.


And the inside... I think it's come out quite well, even if I do say so myself, love these papers - the colours are just gorgeous.
And love this sentiment, thought since I was decorating the inside of the card I'd put the sentiment on the inside too.


And the front and inside together


Supplies: 'Shopping Nikki' Stamp, 'Peacock Lane' Papers by Bo Bunny, Double Dot Card by Bo Bunny
Extras: White Card, Purple & Turquoise Ink Pad, Gems, Derwent Pencils, Water Colours

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges...
