La-La’s Weekly Wednesday Challenge #5

Wednesday is here so that means it's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! But it's not just any challenge because this week is my turn to host!

I love to embellish my cards so I decided on the theme "Embellish It!" Please use at least 3 different types of embellishments on your projects this week. They can be anything - buttons, ribbon, charms, brads, flowers, glitter, etc., as long as you've got 3 different types! I hope you have fun with this challenge!

I actually went a little crazy with the challenge and used more than 3 different 'bellies:


You can see that I used lace, ribbon, several sizes of flat back pearls, flowers, and a beaded pearl pin! I used Window Lala (she is definitely one of my fave Lalas!), some pretty papers and a rub-on that Irina sent in my first DT package. Lala was colored with Copics and just a bit of colored pencil around the irises, cut out and popped up with foam boosters. Here's a close shot of the focal panel:


I used sketch #5 from Get Sketchy and this card also qualifies for the Lili of the Valley challenge - use the colors green, brown and orange.

We hope you'll play along with us this week! All the details can be found at the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!
