Chinese Takeout - Lawnscaping Challenge 67

I'm joining in on the Lawnscaping Challenge to use pattern paper and Lawn Fawn Products in your card design. I had yet to ink up this set after adding it to my Lawn Fawn collection a little while back so I knew right off this was the set I wanted to use.

When it came time to find some paper pattern(s) that would work... well lets see, the phone book paper, since it connects to the idea of calling for take-out seemed like a good one and while red-checked tablecloths don't bring to mind Chinese, they are something that most equate with food of some sort, whether it's a picnic or Italian.

Lawn Fawn has such fun images and I had a lot of fun with the card using a combination of marker coloring and paper piecing. On the fortune cookies I paper pieced them first and then added some depth by coloring them in spots too.

Happy Crafting!
