Inspiration Friday with La La Land Crafts -- Frame it!

Hey everyone and happy FRIDAY! Whoot whoot! The weekend is near and it's time to play! Can't wait!

Today I'd like to share a card I created for La La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday challenge. This week's challenge is to "frame it"! And I did just that on this card using cute little Marci with Tulip!

I colored up Marci onto PaperTrey Ink white card stock (my all-time favorite card stock to Copic color on.) I used one of the frames from Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime paper collection and did some fussy cutting using the Primrose Cottage paper -- I love the little blossoms on this paper!

Here are some photos of my card...

A little close up of Marci... I just LOVE her curly 'do! ❤

I punched out the green polka dot fern leaves using a Martha Stewart punch and the Tiny Treasures paper from Once Upon a Springtime. The lace is from Webster's Pages and the pearl trim from

I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch to create the multi-layered green butterfly...

The cherry blossom was handmade using I Am Roses hydrangea petals and Lindy's Stamp Gang Cape Cod Coral Starburst Spray. I popped a pearl in the center and added some I Am Roses rose leaves around the cherry blossom...

Copic Markers:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20, BV00

Hair: E74, E77, E79
Tulip: R11, R12, YG61, YG63
Soil: E57, E59
Pot: E08, E09
