Lawnscaping Challenge #7

Hello everybody!

Sounds like so much fun, right?
I just know we're going to get some great entries this go round.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

And one of you lucky participants are going to
take home a FABULOUS prize:

Start filling up your shopping cart just in case it's you!

Okay, so here's my card:

The idea for this card came to me while I was staring at
Lawn Fawn's Lunar Lights. I realized that when the square lantern
was lying on it's side, it looked like a shopping bag.
The pun came naturally after that, so I grabbed the kitty
from Critters In The Burbs and with a little masking,
got him stamped inside the bags for my patterned paper.

After I put the whole card together, I thought that the space
between the bag and the cat looked too empty,
so I used the small plain rectangular lantern from Lunar Lights
to make cans of cat food to add visual interest and color.
I wanted to use the small fish from Critters In The Sea
on the cans, but they were too big, so I just drew my own.

So head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
and see the other amazing design team samples,
and don't forget to visit our individual blogs and leave some
comment love and encouragement.
and our amazingly talented guest designer,
the chica without whom we wouldn't even
get to be here doing this:

One last thing before you run off:
Thank you all so much for participating
in my blog giveaway last week!
The winner of that prize package is

AGohl, who said:
"Totally cute card btw!!!"
Yay! AGohl is my cousin Ashley,
and I know she doesn't have any Lawn Fawn stamps yet,
so I was really excited when the boys drew her name!
Ashley, email me your snail mail address again
and I'll get your package right out to you.

For the rest of you, stay tuned.
