First La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!

Thanks for joining me for the first La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was picked by our DT Coordinator, Jane, and it is Flower Power:

You must have at least one flower somewhere on the card. It can be Prima flowers (or similiar), pressed flowers, embossed flowers, stamped flowers, etc. The challenge is to use your flower(s) in a way where it stands out but the main focus should still be your stamped image.

To kick off our very first challenge, everyone that participates this week will be entered into a drawing for a FREE Window La-La stamp!

The design team will be selecting their top 3 favorites for each challenge. The Top 3 will get to put this adorable button on their blog:


And for this week, the one with the most votes from the team will get 25% off at the La-La Land Crafts online store!

You will find all the rules on how to participate on the La-La Land Crafts Blog.

And now my card for this week's challenge:

I used Birthday Lala and some Heidi Grace papers. Lala was colored with Copics, cut out and mounted with foam tape. If you look at the original Birthday Lala image, you'll notice that I gave her a little haircut! I just felt like giving her short hair for this card! I also colored and cut out an extra present with hands attached and mounted that with foam tape over the main image. For some extra pizazz I put some Stickles on her hair pins and shoes (done with a needle to get into the really tiny areas) and also on the flower button.

You can see the coloring and dimension a little better here (you can also click the picture above to enlarge):

For the flowers, I used 2 sizes of Prima hydrangeas, and a rose from Paper Wishes. I put some Stardust glitter pen on the hydrangeas and moved it around with a water brush.

Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations of all my fellow DT members (links on the sidebar). I hope you'll join us this week and TFL!
