This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER - Mercy. I have always admired her work and am more than happy to CASE her gorgeous gallery. So for this CASE job I picked her very 1st card in her gallery LADY BUG PARADE. I had also spotted these CUTE SLIPPERS from Saturday's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Little Odd Forest Hand Bags. For my layout I used Amy's Sketch Challenge # 3. What a fun layout it is. I stamped the lady bug in real red and basic black ink then used my black marker to make the trail line. The sentiment is stamped in black, That gorgeous red and black ribbon is from my darling daughter Shannon (e3erskine). On the inside I stamped the smaller lady bug and the trail as well as the sentiment from Polka Dot's and Paisly "Find joy in the little things". I love how this turned out. I actually made this at Shannon's for the Inspiration Challenge and found it also fit today's challenge.
Edited To Include: OK so I forgot to mention I stamped this image 3 times before getting it half way right. I was so frustrated, guess it was because I was not in my stamp room and out of my comfort zone at Shannon's when I tried to make this but nevertheless the 3rd attempt was perfect right up to the time where I dropped her ink pad right on top of my image. Gggggrrrrrr.
