Lawnscaping Challenge #9 -- Let's Party!
Here's a closer look at one of the cards (made with salvaged pieces!) that I shared in yesterday's blog post. I'm also entering it in the party themed challenge at Lawnscaping.
I first stamped the background with Hero Arts' Large Canvas Stripes and used some Spellbinder Nestabilities to die cut the large and scallop circles for the base of the card. I just love the newest Lawn Fawn critters, especially the cute hedgehog, and decided she was the perfect size for a small card.
I reattached the pennant flags and gave the hedgie a little party hat from the Hats Off to You set. I used a salvaged cupcake and added a little candle from the Bake Me a Cake set. The sentiment is from Just My Type Too. Party on, hedgie!
I've been on such a kraft kick lately. Part of the reason is a dear friend gave me tons of it (Thanks, Phyllis!) since her niece was doing some housecleaning, and I just love the way colors pop against it.
You'll be seeing a lot more kraft because my Purple Onions order just arrived and I can't wait to share more cards with you.
Thanks, always, for stopping by! Hope you're off to a great week...
