Lawnscaping Challenge blog.
It is entirely possible that as I am ageing, (gracefully of course), I am becoming sillier! Because that is how I felt when I finished my card, don't get me wrong, I like it, but maybe the design is silly. Oh well, you can be the judge of that!
Paper: cardstock (PTI); yellow cardstock & green plaid paper (unknown); patterned paper (MME)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & Cottage Ivy; Brilliance - Sunflower Yellow; Copic marker
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Fly Free; Blissful Botanicals; Hello Friend)
Other: EK Success circle punch
I used the "our friendship is forever" sentiment from the Hello Friend set and clinged it in a skew position on my stamping block before stamping repeatedly to create some "grass". I then stamped and paper pieced the flower.
I cut a circle from yellow cardstock and adhered it in the corner to create a sun, trimming off the excess, and then decided to create some rays using the smaller "smile" sentiment from the Fly Free set.
It's a mini card, it only measures 3.5 X 4.25", I just find that they are easier to create when you are dealing with smaller stamps.
I think I will write a seperate post about our trip to New York, which was absolutely wonderful! That city is ALIVE! I am glad to be back, I missed my daughter so very much, and my own BED!
Ok, perhaps I will be back later, trying to figure out a card for the current sketch challenge over at Lily Pad! Thanks for stopping by!
