Inspiration Monday--Love is in the Air

Happy Monday morning to ya! It's time for another La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday and the theme this week is:

Love is in the Air

I decided to use Heart Balloon Marci for my card today. She's so adorable and absolutely fun and easy to color up....I {heart} LLLC! I'm still working on coloring pleats....it definitely takes lots and lots of practice for sure!! I'm not quite there yet, but maybe by the summer, LOL! I do love how her hair turned out....lots of "flicking" involved on the hair. :)

Copics:
Skin: E11, E00, E000, R24, chalk
Hair: E49, E37, E33
Dress/Headbands: R22, R24, R32, Inkssentials Opaque White Pen
White areas: C3, Colorless Blender, Stardust Stickles
Balloon: YG25, YG17, Inksentials Opaque White Pen, Stardust Stickles

It's a pretty clean and simple card, but most of my cards still take me forever. I have a hard time figuring out card designs and papers. If I could just have someone come over, pick papers out and do some card layouts ahead of time for me, my card-making life would be sooooo much easier, haha! Although I'm sure lots of you wish for the same thing. :)

If I just didn't have to work full-time, but the hubby said I would just find something else to take up all my time...so true!

Additional Supplies Used:
Cardstock from Close To My Heart
White Ink Pad from Close To My Heart (rubbed over embossing)
DP from Echo Park Little Girl Collection Kit
Sentiment Sticker from 7gypsies Together Ensemble
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts & Recollections
Candy Hearts Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug Love's in the Air Embossing Set
Martha Stewart Edge Punch-Lace Heart
Pink Pearls from my stash

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. I raised Tilda and the sentiment on pop-dots.

Now, don't forget you can play along with all our challenges by uploading your creations to the LLLC Customer Gallery as many times as you like during the month. At the beginning of the next month LLLC will choose one of the entries to award a prize to... it could be YOU!!


Have a great week! CHA is fast approaching (this Friday I'll be flying to Cali)!! I'll try to post pictures throughout CHA for your viewing pleasure!

Hugs,
Rosie :)

I totally understand what you mean when you said you have hard time figuring out the card design and to choose papers. I usually spend a LOT of time doing this.
Marci is adorable. Her hair look so realistic - fab work with coloring them (well, the whole image actually). If I lived closer I'd definitely ask you to give me some coloring lessons. ;)
Have a wonderful week! Hugs!
