La-La Land Crafts Challenge #4 -Embellish!


This week's La La Land's Weekly Wednesday Challenge is EMBELLISH!

Welllllll....Embellishments are not really my thing. I tend to like simple and clean with lots of layers, but I gave this a shot! Irina (the owner of La-La Land Crafts) is just a master at embellishing, so I am anxious to see what she comes up with! Her creations are always an inspiration!

Emblellishments strain my brain, but I managed to use twill ribbon, a punched sentiment, and some little green leaves under the ribbon. Whew!( I know that sounds silly...)

I used the sketch challenge this week from Mary Jo's Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #87. Mary Jo always has GREAT challenges.

I stamped up Sweet Rosie for this challenge. I added Rosie to this very pretty Basic Grey (BG) gift tag (this is a pretty big tag(6.5 x 3.5 inches), that was embellished with some BG DP. I also added a touch of blue, kiwi kiss and rose colored cardstock for accents.

La La Land has posted their cute Halloween images HERE! You should see samples of these coming your way soon. Also, all US orders over $50 are shipped for free during the month of September! ...and I have seen a sneak peak of the Christmas images...fun, fun, fun!
