Lawnscaping Challenge #13

Hey there! 
Welcome to the Lawnscaping Challenge #13!

I was really excited about this one because 
it gave me an opportunity to really grow as a crafter,
since I typically don't do anything to the inside of my cards.
I'm definitely going to try to do this more often!
It really makes the whole card seem more finished.

And we have a new and exciting sponsor for this round,
Karen is a well-known designer and paper crafter
who focuses primarily on designing pop-up and interactive
elements and is a licensed designer for Sizzix.

Please visit the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
for more information about Karen and the prize
(the die featured by the design team)
she has generously offered up.

For this challenge, we were given these great new
Sizzix pop-up die cuts to play with.
When I first received mine, I have to admit I was 
really afraid they would be difficult to use.
But after watching this great video, I saw 
that they couldn't be simpler!

And they just make a card so much fun!
Here's what I did with mine, using Lawn Fawn's
Critters on the Farm and Plus One stamps
and My Mind's Eye papers.

and the inside:

I hope you like it!

The other girls on the design team turned out
some amazing cards that you really have to see.
and we are very lucky to have with us
the fabulously talented Niki Estes
for our July guest designer.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
And don't forget to head over to the 
for all the details of how to play along.

I can't wait to see your creations!
