Lawnscaping Challenge #4

Happy Monday, everybody!
And welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #4!
This one is a whole lotta fun.

And we have a great prize for you, too.
The winner of the challenge will take home
this adorable stamp set by Lawn Fawn.
It's so versatile, it's already become my
most used stamp set in my arsenal!

And not only that,
but we're introducing an extra-special bonus prize
for the second monthly challenge.
It's more than an honor,
it's a chance to bond with us design team girls
and promote your blog while having a great time.

It's a wonderful opportunity,
and I have a feeling the competition is going to be
even fiercer than ever now!
Can't wait to see all the cards that start flooding in.

And speaking of cards, here's my take on the challenge:

I've been wanting to use the little "merci"
thank you stamp that Kelly Marie sent me with my
first Lawn Fawn order, and when I saw
this paper from Echo Park's Be Mine collection,
I knew they'd be a match made in heaven!

All that was needed was a little chic sweater
for my pup, which I made by stamping him twice,
then drawing the lines in and cutting it out,
and a beret, which I drew freehand with a pencil
then traced with a copic multiliner.

Want another look?

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog
and check out all the other amazing DT samples,
then visit each of the girls and leave them
some personal comment love.
