Lawnscaping Challenge #48

Welcome to our very last Lawnscaping Challenge of 2012!

What an awesome year of challenges it's been.
Huge thanks to one of our biggest supporters,
the ever incredible Lawn Fawn, who is generously 
offering up a free stamp set of the winners choice.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, Lawn Fawn!

Here's my card:

No stamping involved on this card at all,
which means I was able to make it in record time,
since time is something I've been awfully short on lately.

For my Lawn Fawn element, I chose this 
awesome patterned paper from their Fa La La
Petite Paper Pack -- the last sheet of it I had!
I'm going to have to order another 6x6 for sure.

I thought these Studio Calico wood veneer trees
went so well with these sketchy chevron Lawn Fawn 
trees, so I decided to pair them up --
except they definitely needed to get glittered up.
I used a fine glitter on two trees,
a Martha Stewart chunky glitter on the largest tree,
and nail polish -- you read that right -- 
NAIL POLISH on the silvery tree.

I didn't have any silver glitter,
and what to crafty girls do when we don't have
something we have a vision for?
We improvise.
I colored the wood veneer with a C5 copic marker
just to give the glitter a bit of a colored base,
then applied four thin coats of nail polish over top.

I adhered them all down with glossy accents,
and added a sentiment from another 6x6 pad
from Crate Paper -- the Peppermint Collection?
Something like that. 
I just liked it, and it was the perfect shade of red.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my card.
Just wait till you see the rest of the design team's projects!
Head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog
to take a peek and find out how to play along.

I wish you and yours all a very Merry Christmas
and a blessed start to the brand new year!
