Lawnscaping Challenge #2

Happy Monday, everybody!
Not only is it Monday, but it's the third Monday
of the month, which also makes it
Lawnscaping Challenge #2 day!

Here's the challenge:

and the prize:

Fun, right?
I hopped on over to the Lawn Fawn blog
to find a card of Kelly Marie's to CASE.
Not hard at all, since she's a fabulous card artist
and there's a ton of great choices to pick from.
But while I was there,
I thought it would be fun to go back to the very beginning
of Lawn Fawn through the archives and
learn more about how Kelly Marie
turned her dream into the AMAZING
company Lawn Fawn is today.

So back in March of 2009,
(before Lawn Fawn stamps were
even in exsistence)
I came across this little gem:

I thought the circle card was really fun --
I'd never made one before, and the sentiment!
Well, that was just the icing on the cake.
It reads: "Keeep a green tree in your heart
and perhaps a singing bird will come."
Love it.
I just HAD to do my own version of it.
And here it is:

I did have to shorten the sentiment a little.
There just wasn't room for any more stickers!

Fun angle shot:

Anyway, I hope you like it
and that it inspires you a little!
Now head on over to the
to catch a peek at the other
Design Team member's cards
and get all the info on how to enter!

And don't forget to stop by their
personal blogs and leave them some love!
