City Chic Fashion - Creative Ladybirds Challenge One

 Good morning fellow crafters and followers.  1st March today and a new challenge is starting called Creative Ladybirds Creations.  It is a monthly challenge which will start on the 1st of every month.
 Our Sponsors for this 1st challenge is
with a prize of 3 digital stamps.
with a prize of 5 digital stamps
with a prize of 7 digital stamps
My first card for our brand new challenge is from Lemon Shortbread and is a gorgeous lady called 80s City Chic Fashion Girl Digital Stamp
I always print my digi images in draft quality and usually use Copic Xpress it card which I buy from Sir Stampalot. It is lovely quality card and so smooth giving a lovely finish.
Usually I use copic marker pens but I treat myself to a setoff Chameleon Pens and this lovely lady is my first attempt at using them.  Not sure about the jacket but the pens are lovely once you get used to them and I will admit they are taking some getting used too.
The layout I have chosen was inspired by issue 15 of the Tattered Lace Magazine as some of you may know I do struggle with layouts so those magazines are my 'go too' for inspiration.
I have kept it simple using an 8x8 base card, some matting and layering and an embossing folder from Sue Wilson called Basket Weave.
I cut my squares using Charlie, my BSC and saved that one for another time.  The letters are also from the alphabet in Charlie. As is the oval shapes. 
 To see more inspiration from our design team just follow the link here which will take you to the challenge page and whilst you are there, don't forget to enter your inspirational card too for a chance to win some super prizes from our sponsors.  GOOD LUCK folks.
See you all soon and take care.
