Lawnscaping Challenge

Now before you think I'm talking about mowing the lawn, or trimming the bushes or weeding, the Lawnscaping Challenge is a paper crafting challenge devoted to using Lawn Fawn products. I came across this challenge blog not too long ago and this is my first time playing along but I love the Lawn fawn sets and have a couple so I'm hoping to play along often.

The sketch is shown as a square and I adjusted it to an A2 size but otherwise, as you can see, included all the elements, plus a few more. I'm not sure how easy it is to tell in this photo but I cut some clouds into the top of my card front panel and when it is folded flat you can see the blue panel, which is the inside of the card. I stamped a few of the clouds onto the top with Versamark. The airplane and cloud stamps are from the Bon Voyage set and the sentiment if from the Paper Airplane set. The red string of flags was actually already die-cut sitting on my table from another project I had just completed but it turned out to work nicely to fill in what was otherwise an uncomfortable gap and I like the way it adds movement to the design.

Happy Crafting!
