La-land Weekly Wednesday Challenge #31

This week's challenge is to make your own flowers. Don't forget to check out the La-la Land Craft's blog to see the rest of the DT's creations! This started as Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from Saturday, but my image just didn't fit right.

It's a bright one today! Well, since these flowers have been so popular, I finally caved in and ripped up one of paperbacks, lol. I used the dahlia and scalloped circle Nestabilties to make my flower. It's held together with a brad and then I just used a pink button and some twine to dress it up. My whole card is distressed with Chocolate Chip ink.

Paper: Basic Grey Lemonade
Stamps: La-la Land Crafts, sentiment is Amuse
CTMH Brads, Copics, PTI Buttons, Twine, Nestabilities, Rhinestones, and Crystal Stickles


This week's special is Porsha, the lovely lady in my card. She's 20% off! Also, the spring Easter stamps are finally here!

Well, I hope you all have a fabulous hump day. I will be running again tonight...and hopefully not scaring the people next to me. :)
