The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge #2

Welcome back to the Crafter’s Cafe Challenge #2: Ribbons and/or Lace

There’s always something fun going on at The Crafter’s Cafe.

This month, the theme is is to use ribbons and/or lace on your project.

I fell in love with this adorable ladybug digi called, “Love You Lara,” by Digital Delights, partly because she’s just so darn cute and partly because my nickname is Globug. I coloured her with my Copics, added stitching to the heart box with my white gel pen and embellished her with some sparkle and ribbon. As I have been doing with all my cards this year, I finished the two inside panels and the back with the same designer paper. The sentiment, “I totally love you,” is generic enough to use for Valentine’s Day or any time you just want to say, “I love you.”

The CCCB, which was launched on February 1, will be posting a new challenge on the first Wednesday of each month and it will last for the whole month. We have two teams,  so you’ll be seeing creations from lots of really talented crafters.  And, the design teams will post a new collection of inspiration cards every week to help go your mojo working!

This month’s challenge is to use purple, pink and red on your creation!! With Valentine’s Day almost here, this should be a piece of (chocolate) cake!
Our first sponsor, A Day for Daisies, has provided our team with some absolutely adorable images to use for our February challenge.
 The winner will be chosen by our friendly neighbourhood random generator. This month’s prize is a $12 gift certificate to A Day for Daisies!!
I used the Tiny Pixie Leaf image for my first inspiration card. I hope it helps to get your creative juices flowing.
