Pink and Polka Dotted

I have shopped at 7 Kids College Fund on several occasions and was excited to see that they now have a challenge blog.  It's brand new and the first challenge is to use pink and polka dots.  I first stamped the C.C. Designs Sweet November stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock. I cut her out with one of the Labels 8 Nestabilities and inked the edges while it was in the die.  I then colored her with Copic markers. The Stampendous ladybug image was also colored with Copic markers. I paired the stamped images with some older Heidi Grace Reagan's Closet patterned paper.  I twisted together two different colors of crinkly seam binding ribbon and then tied them together with a simple knot rather than a bow.  A couple of Prima Flower and American Crafts brads and it was done! Clean, simple and very girly girl.

Products: Sweet November stamp, Stampendous (ladybug) stamp, Heidi Grace pp, American Crafts brads, MemrieMare crinkled seam binding, Prima flower, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers

Copics: Skin-E0000, E00, E02; Hair-B0000, B000, B01; Eyes-B41, B32, B34; Wings-YG01, YG13, YG25; Dress and Ladybug-RV00, RV32, RV34, RV23; Shadows-C00

Is it just me or is August just flying by?
