Lawnscaping Challenge #30

Hey there!

A very special thanks goes out to our wonderful sponsor,
the stamp company whose images we've all fallen in love with,
the whimsically wonderful Lawn Fawn!

We truly are grateful to Kelly Marie and the gang
for offering up this fantastic prize:

Okay, so Lawnscaping Challenge #30 was such a fun one
because it's all about being inspired by other crafters.
Honestly this one was super easy because I am inspired
by all you amazingly creative people all the time!

But I chose to CASE this lovely card by Vera Rhuhay.

I just loved the way the tendrils were curling down,
dotted with flowers... something about it always 
reminded me of my favorite tree -- the weeping willow.
So I decided to make mine just that.
As if the camera person were standing beneath one.

I used a total of six Lawn Fawn stamp sets, including:
Critters Ever After, Sew Lovely, Critters In The Forest,
Sally's ABCs, Hats Off To You, and Cozy Christmas.

This card reminds me of the Serendipity books
I used to read in grade school.
Anyone else remember those? I loved them!

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by today!
Please be sure to check out the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
for all the details on how to enter,
and to see the rest of the design team's amazing creations.

Have a great day!
