Let's Get Punchy and have your Die Cuts at the Ready!

Here's todays 2nd post!
It's my 2nd week as a guest at La La Lands and this weeks challenge is to use your Punches and Die Cuts.
How more perfect for me could that be?
Also if you are in the Carson CA area this Saturday and Sunday be sure to check out the Stamp in the Hand show where you'll find La La Lands stamps (and examples ) at the Stamp On Over booth.

Of course I had to add more challenges to this super cute card.

Etsy Inspired had a photographer's store for inspiration and I chose the Haystack Series of photos to work with the cute Maya image.
One Stop Challenges wanted a Card for a Child
Saturday Spotlight wanted you to be "Repeatedly Useful" and use an image more than once on a card
Scrap Stamp and Doodle wanted to see "Special Folds" so I did another of my new favorite Easel cards
Charisma Cardz gave me the sketch
Allsorts wanted you to "Bring Out Your Bling!"
Alphabet Challenge wanted to see Decoupage so I stamped and colored two Maya's and decoupaged her.

I chose super sweet Happy Maya for this card and I'm sure she'll bring a smile to anyones face.
I colored her with Copic's and chose a few parts to decoupage to add more depth.
The papers are old from my stash. I used a QK circle to cut out Maya and matted her with a scalloped Nestie.
I used the brand new deep edge garden lattice punch from Martha Stewart and the green "pearls" are from Martha too.
The yellow buttons are from The Paper Studio and the ribbon is Michaels.
I faux stitched at the edges wih a Prismacolor pen.

This is my second easel card this week and I just love how this style of card showcases the wonderful image.

So grab your punches and dies and come and play over at La La Lands!
