LLWWC #40 Nestabilities Shaped Cards

Hello and welcome to another La-la Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week's challenge hostess is the talented 1LuvnMama and she has a good one for ya! Use your Nesties to create a shaped card. How cool is that?! I, myself, occasionally need to be reminded to think outside the box and this challenge is the perfect exercise to get the old noggin' moving in a creatively fresh direction when it comes to card crafting.

Everyone is welcome to play, but if you use a La-La Land Crafts image in your creation, you could be selected to win a $10 credit to use in the La-la Land Crafts boutique. If you're in the top 3 you will win a special La-La Land badge to proudly display on your blog.
1LuvnMama used the adorable image, Lala with Bunny on her card, so that image is 20% off this week. Swing by the shop to pick her up at this special price. Be sure to look around while you're there. In addition to high quality cling mounted stamps La-la Land Crafts also has several digital images, which are perfect for impatient folks like myself ;D Purchase a digi image today and join us in this week's challenge!

For my card, I used Sitting Lala. Isn't she sweet? I cannot stress how fun these images are to color with the Copics. Lots of open areas to practice shading and highlighting. Fabulous! I reached for a stack of my Nesties to use on this project and just layered them up. This is the perfect recipe for a quick and easy card. The addition of a little glitter glue and a paper flower takes this card from simple to special in just a matter of minutes.

Stop by the La-la Land Crafts Blog to see the beautiful inspiration pieces created by the crafty design team and to get the low down on the details for this week's challenge. I hope you join us! ;D
