Challenge day at La La Land Crafts

Are you ready for today's challenge over at La La Land Crafts?  
Lori has challenged us to make a card using black and white with a pop of color.  The pop of color from my understanding is to be one color and/or shades of one color, I hope I did this right!  

Right or not I had a really good time making my card!  
I thought La La with the rose would be perfect for this project, I imagined her rose to be the pop of color and I'm really liking BG11, 13 & 18 with black.  My La La is a digital image so I made her just the size I wanted  to fit into the Spellbinders Labels 10 die I wanted to use.  After coloring her, I used the Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels 10 stamp set to stamp the dots around her then cut her out with the die.  I'm living dangerously, I know...  I should know better, I'm really disappointed when I mess one of those up too.  

After all that I looked through my pads of designer papers and found the perfect match to her rose, I just had to find some black or black and white pattered paper from my stash.  I used a sketch I'd saved from a Stamping Bella challenge in June and really like the way it all came together.  The black panel is embossed with a Papertrey Ink floral embossing plate and I made an insert for the envelope out of the leftover patterned paper using the Papertrey Ink die for that.  I love the look of an envelope with a liner, very fancy!

Lori used Bubble La La for her challenge card this week so she's 20% off this week at La La Land Crafts!

Jan, this is fab! Lala looks wonderful and I love that sketch! I may have to borrow that one later ;D The little dots inside the die cut are such an awesome detail! You're right, you do like to live dangerously. I would have made a complete mess of it...hehehe! PLUS, those little pearls along the side are just the right finishing touch!
