La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #43

It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week I am your hostess and I've chosen the theme of embossing because it's something I normally love to do on cards, but for some reason haven't done lately! Here's what I came up with:

I used the new Beach Lala set and a sketch from Taylored Expressions. In case you can't see it, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the polka dot patterned paper. I like that it gives the paper a more whimsical look and some texture!

Lala was colored with Copics, her ball paper pieced, and then the whole thing cut out and popped up on the focal panel. I added the banner with brads airbrushed to match the cardstock and popped up in the middle with foam boosters. Finally I added a sentiment from the Beach Lala set and some straight stitching.

BTW, in case anybody's wondering about the highlights in her eyes, I normally color over the highlights in the image with a black pen and then dot in my own highlight later with a white gel pen. That way I can get the highlights the size I want and placed where I want them.

This card is also for: Before I go, I want to let you know that whatever image the hostess uses on her project is 20% off for the week of the challenge, and this week it's Beach Lala! And since we have a requirement that you must use a La-La Land Crafts image on your projects to win the $10 credit or Top Three, don't forget that we have all these fabulous digi images available!
