Lawnscaping Challenge #10

Hello there!
Can you believe our 10th challenge is already here?
And, gosh, it's a fun one!
I mean, who doesn't love polka dots, right?
Check it out:

And we have a very special sponsor for you.
Mold Muse has generously donated a $25 gift certificate
to their fantastic Etsy shop for the winner.

If you aren't familiar with Mold Muse, they make
 silicone molds for use with polymer clay and resin.
Kelly Marie Alvarez has two video tutorials here and here,
and Laurel Beard has two here and here.
The molds are fun and easy to use, so be sure to check those out.

Also, the winner of Lawnscaping Challenge #10
will receive a guest designer spot on a future challenge!

Okay, so for my card,
I decided to turn my molded clay flowers into earrings,
and then use them to embellish the front of the card.
This was a super simple project,
and it turned out adorable, don't you think?

To make room for the earring studs behind the panel,
I added 3 layers of dimensional adhesive squares to the 4 corners.

I also wanted to mention that my sentiment came from
Lawn Fawn's Bows & Holly set.
That's what I love so much about Lawn Fawn stamps.
They're so versatile, that even a Christmas set
works perfectly for every day use.
Did you know that Lawn Fawn is also sneak peeking
NINE new sets at their blog this week? Yay!

Speaking of things you don't want to miss,
how about the other design team member's fabulous samples!
and our lovely guest designer

And of course, you'll want to visit the
Lawnscaping Challenge blog for all the details on how to enter.

Have a fantastic week, everybody!
