Robyn's Debut

I can't believe that the Ladybugs are up to their 4th challenge already (and yay not missed one yet lol), I got this stamp in my latest order from Ladybug Crafts Ink, so have only had it for a couple of weeks and yep it's inked up already!!! Not like me at all I normally hang on to them for months lol so this is my first Robyn Stamp (though I'm sure that won't last long lol).

The challenge was to follow Michele's Sketch, I adapted it a bit as the image was on an oval (the plan was to use a different image cut into an oval but it just wouldn't come together so I decided to use the Robyn Stamp which fitted perfectly into the circle - another hand cut scalloped circle (nope I hadn't kept a template from last time, doh, though it was a lot quicker this time - and a cuttlebug is on my Christmas List lol), and I've now just realised this is almost the same layout as I used for the last challenge, oh well, atleast I've got different papers lol. I also adapted the bit across the bottom to put one piece of ribbon and borrowed Kerry's idea of putting rows of gems across in place of the other strips, I put these onto the white card as they looked a bit lost on the patterned paper. Anyways here's the card...


Supplies: 'Birthday Cake Robyn' Stamp by Ladybug Crafts Ink, 'Forever Friends' Papers, Card by DCWV, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Gems, Ribbon from Stash, Promarkers, Copics, Glossy Accents, Purple Ink Pad

Very nice take on the sketch, love that Robyn image with all the sparkle... Is that a happy birthday ribbon or did you stamp on a "normal" ribbon?
