Marci with Flower card and some GREAT news!

Hi everyone! Here's a cute little card I made using LaLa Land Craft's new Marci with Flower rubber cling stamp, available soon at Stamper's Dream! I colored her up using my Copic markers and At You Spica Glitter pens. Is she not the cutest?!

I decided to make a garden for little Marci! The paper collection is Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime. I used some miniature wooden fencing I found at Joann's awhile back and used a crackle technique to make it look aged (1 layer of brown acrylic paint, 1 layer of Crackle medium, then 1 layer of white acrylic paint.) All the flowers and sprays are from my I Am Roses flower stash. The doily was die-cut using MFT's High Tea Doily. The flourish is by Sizzix. I hand crinkled some seam binding and added a Bazzil Bling button to the center.

Here's a close up...

I'm also SUPER excited to announce that Irina Blount, owner for La-La Land Crafts, has invited me to play along with her talented and AWESOME design team for the months of June and July! I'm so over the moon about this and am so humbled! I've always loved La-La Land Crafts stamps/images, so to be able to showcase them with Irina's DT is truly an honor. Be sure to check back here on my blog, or follow me on Facebook for my projects! Thanks Irina and LLLC! :-)

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a spectacular week!
