Hugs...and Some Happy News...

Happy "hump day" everyone! I have some fun news to share today...I've joined the Wednesday Design Team for La-La Land Crafts! Each week I'll be joining the rest of the Wednesday team to showcase the creative ways we use the wonderful LLLC dies (and a few of their other fun products here and there)'s only been a very short time since I joined the group, and I'm having a ton of fun already!

Today's card is my first for LLLC, and one of my "fully loaded shabby chic" projects...

and it's based on the following sketch inspiration...

Here are a few close-up shots...starting with a couple pics of the florals surrounded by "shabbified" leaves cut with the Open Leaf Flourish die...

and a closeup of the Scallop Border Die, cut from both the blue and taupe papers, layered atop the Lattice Doily Border Die...

Dies:   La-La Land Crafts Open Leaf Flourish,  Scallop Border,  Lattice Doily Border
Patterned papers:   Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics
Sentiment die:   Technique Tuesday "hugs"
Silver metal corner:          Pearls:   Recollections
Miscellaneous:   white stamens,  white hemp cording

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I hope you're having a wonderful week so far!
