La La Lands Guest DT- Pink Challenge

Happy Wednesday!
I was very honored to be asked to join as a Guest Designer at La La Lands for November and December!
If you're a follower of mine you'll know that most weeks I join their challenges and have won on a few occasions too!
So it was easy to say yes and today is my very first card in my guesting role.
And the challenge was a super one for me as it was to use the color Pink!
Of course I had to add a few other challenges along the way.
Three Clovers wanted a card/project for a Teenager.
Stamps and Smiles gave me the sketch
Hand Full Of Stamps wanted 4 of something
Daring Cardmakers wanted you to Get Punchy
Fun With Shapes and More wanted Frames and Borders
Die Cuts R Us wanted you to "Nest Something"
Kraftin Kimmie said "Tag You're It!"
One Stop Craft wanted to see you use Text Paper
Saturday Spotlight wanted the theme of "In So Many Words" and I think the background text paper works here :)

I used the super cute Sweet LaLa and in fact she's the first LaLa Lands stamp I've created a card with!
I colored her twice with Copic's and cut out and popped up on image on the other for dimension.
I've used 3 different dp, 2 are DCWV and the other is a Paper Pizazz. I love that with card making you can use papers from years ago and as long as your style and design is current it all works!
I used fabric brads for the "4" challenge and I framed LaLa with a Nestie and added a border using the wonderful Valentines Lace border punch from Martha Stewart.
The sentiment is from The Paper Studio mounted on a vellum heart tag from Making Memories.

Inside is more dp and a message mat.

You cna see the shadow formed by the "popping" of LaLa and I hope you like her.
I'd love to see your Pink Creation so be sure to drop by La La Lands and join in the fun!

Great Card, Katie! The inside looks as good as the front. That is always a plus in my book. LaLa is a cutie pa-tootie! Nice shadow too, depth is always another good thing. Wonderful to have you back for the DCRU Challenge.
