Lala and the Butterfly - Bling Challenge in La-La Land

This card is for this week's challenge at La-La Land Crafts Blog, Kim Yu is hosting the challenge this week. Here is what Kim has to say:

"This week's challenge is BLING, BLING! I would like everyone to add some blings, sparkles, glitter, anything that blings to your creation! There are so many blings out there these days so the possibilities are endless! So take all those BLINGS out and play along!"

The design team will select the top 3 favorites for each challenge...The Top 3 will get an adorable button on their blog and the one with the most votes will also get 25% off at La-La Land Crafts online store!

Please visit our blog for details on how to play and to see all the projects from our Design Teams.

And here is my card for this week's challenge... I've seen some of the corner bookmark cards and really loved the idea. Really wanted to try it one of these days, and decided that today was the day!! This will be one of the cards for my upcoming "Bookmark Cards" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three cards in this class, all with different style of the removable bookmarks. This class is scheduled for:

Sunday, October 4th, 12 pm to 3 pm
Tuesday, October 13th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please bring foam tape (pop up dots) and your favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max

Class kits are available until October 13th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for this class and/or purchase the kit/s.
*Please wait until tomorrow to call, the store does not have this class on their schedule yet..

This card measures 6" x 6".

I really enjoyed making this card and really pleased with how it has turned out!! Lala definitely looks like she is sitting somewhere in La-La Land ;-) .

Along with Lala stamp from La-La Land Crafts, I used the clear stamp set from BoBunny called Harmony. This set coordinates with the BoBunny Designer paper that I used on this card. I stamped butterfly twice, cut it out and placed on the triangle bookmark. The swirl from the same stamps set was stamped behind the butterfly, in the cirlce behind Lala and also inside of the card. Flowers are from BoBunny as well. The "bling" in the centers of the flowers and inside of the scallops of the circle are from Hero Arts. Crystal Stickles on Lala's shoes, dress and headband.

This Lala stamp is available in our online store, click here. All other supplies are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you don't live in the area, you can place your order over the phone, 408-736-9151.

Now, don't forget to visit La-La Land Crafts blog and enter into this week's challenge!!

I am also entering this card to a few other challenges:
Crafty Creations - to create a project using 3 or more decorative/patterned paper. I am so there, I used 4 different designs!!
Pile it On - this week the challenge is, ROUND! I have something round on my card, the cirlce behind Lala!!
ABC Challenge - C is for Circles. I think the cirlce behind Lala should qualify my card for this challenge.
Secret Crafter - Flights of Fancy, anything with wings. I got the wings on my card, the butterfly!
