La-La Land Crafts Monday Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to La-La Land Crafts Monday Inspiration Challenge! Today I am sharing a card I created using the adorable Sweet Dreams Marci.


I used the Botannical 6x6 paper stack by Prima, colored up Marci using my Copic markers, popped her up on boosters and layered her on top of design paper and kraft cardstock. All the edges are distressed with my Tim Holtz paper edger and Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink.

The challenge theme this week is to play with pearls, lace and punches! I added some Prima lace trimmed with half-back pearls. The sentiment is stamped on a label I punched out with an EK Success Punch and the leaves around the flowers were punched out using Martha Stewart punch. I added a few additional pearls and butterflies (Martha Stewart punch) with pearls to accent the card. I included a banner behind Marci anchored with brads and some I Am Roses flowers distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Here are more pics...
