Hang in There

Hi There,

Yipee, it's Friday which means the weekend is nearly here :) I'm excited that I should (hopefully) have some spare time to craft tomorrow - maybe I might even get another card posted :) 

Today I would like to share a Whimsie Doodles creation that was inspired by both Cupcake  Inspirations Challenge 357 and the current sketch challenge over at the The Paper Players.
I have this thing for ladybugs and love red and black together so was excited to play along.  We have a couple of fantastic ladybug images in the Whimsie Doodles store and the one I used for my card today is a freebie! The image is called Hang in There and can be found here.

Here's my card.

Whimsie Doodles Digital Stamp - Hang in There
Papetrey Ink Impression Plate - Linen
Lil' Inker Design Dies - Stitched Mats Long and Skinny Rectangles
MFT Die-namics - Tag Builder Blueprints 4
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Circle Stax
Doodlebug Designs Paper Pad - Hip Hip Hooray
MFT Stamps Paper pack - Dots and Stripes Neutral
Ranger Enamel Accents - Black
Ranger Glossy Accents
Red Jewellery String

I coloured the image in with my copics and added some glossy accents to his nose and some black enamel accents to his spots. I die cut the image with a stitched circle.  I embossed the card base with a linen impression plate and then adhered some green, red and black scrap pieces of paper to the left hand after adding some red string.  The sentiment was computer generated and die-cut out.

I would also like to play along with the following challenges:
Thanks so much for popping by, I appreciate the visit.
