2 sketches 4 u challenge

There is a great sketch from Laura this week on 2s4u. It took me ages to decide what to do but in the end I decided on a baby card. I didn't want to make this one a fussy card so I stamped the background ladybirds with my versamark and then dusted over with a baby blue chalk. The stamped image is dovecraft and i have been dying to use it for days now. Even though i've used it in the past that was a long time ago. I coloured it with my whispers Gingham Ribbon from my stash.

The little envelope I made with Velum tied the gingham ribbon around it and added just a little message to it. I may do the message again as it's looking a little tatty and i'm not too sure about the stamped letters that I have used. I may hand write a message
