LLLC - Just Because...

It's La-La Land Wednesday, and this week the La-La Land Crafts team is working with a fun inspiration challenge...a "recipe"...
A splash of blue. A hint of pink.
3 squares, a circle, a dab of ink.
A touch of cute, and buttons bright,
Add die cuts plenty 'til it's just right.

Here's my finished project...can you spot all the ingredients?...

I wish the photos could pick up all the subtle sparkle on the really shines IRL! I went with a darker, denim-like blue, accented with very pale mauve pink, all on a light taupe base. 

Along the side of one of the three squares of patterned paper, the Lattice Border Die adds a lacy feel. The  Fancy Butterfly die cut in the center circle is covered with Stardust Stickles that picks up the light so beautifully. The Cherry Blossom Flowers that sit in the center of the butterfly are made with pale pink cardstock, then watercolored with denim blue while a bit of the pink still peeks through...

The memo pin holding the sentiment tag was dry-brushed with white craft paint, then embellished with spacers and beads...

The seam binding bows were dyed with Distress Ink, and accented with a tiny pink button...the button isn't that "bright" but it sure is sparkly with clear coarse glitter in the center...

The leaves made with the Open Leaf Flourish die are layered beneath a couple more sparkly buttons and a small gray pearl flourish...
