Hello Friend!

I'm excited to share a new card with you today, I was able to spend my day yesterday making cards and totally enjoying the process!  I discovered a new company called  LaLa Land Crafts as I was surfing the internet looking for challenges the other day.  I just had to try one of their digi stamps, her name is La La and I think she's so cute!   LaLa Land's challenge this week is the color blue.

She's colored with Copic markers E00, E000, E0000, E04, R02, YG91, YG93, YG97, Co, C3, YR00, YR04, YR07, YR09, E18, Y13, Y15, Y18, YG11, YG13, B000, B00, B01, & B04.  I printed her just the way she came at 3 1/2 inches tall.  My Spellbinder's Oval Nesties die didn't fit she was so big.  I cut her out with my old circle/oval cutting tool from Creative Memories.  I sponged the edges of the oval with Palette Charcoal ink.

The card layout is a sketch by M. Cossa-Rossi of The Town Scrapper, a challenge I'm too late for today but it's a great sketch.  I used SU Basic Gray for the card base and matting, SU Summer Sun, SU In Colors Blue from a few years ago and the patterned paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie.  The sentiment is a digi stamp freebie from Aud's Sentiments challenge blog, her challenge is to use that sentiment on your card.  I thought it went really well with a yellow rose.   Another challenge that kept coming to my mind was from My Time To Craft "Xtra Special" so I had to find that stamp for the inside:
And the final challenge "All That Blooms" from Tuesday Tagger's, LaLa's rose!  
and...  I'm the guest designer next week on Tuesday Tagger's!!

I hope you have some time today for stamping and creating something fun~
