Thanks friend Lawnscaping

Hi guys! I hope your week is going wonderful :) It's almost the 4th and I'm super excited! That is my big family holiday. I get to see all my Aunts, Uncles, and cousins from out of state. Do you have any fun plans for the holiday?

Today's card is for  Lawnscaping sketch challenge.

I had a really hard time with this card :( and I'm still not 100% sold on it. However, the deadline was looming so it is what it is.

I started by drawing a black rectangle on my white card base. I then masked off the outside and stamped the two flowers. On a separate sheet of white I stamped the flower (Lawn Fawn, Judy's Blooms) twice and fussy cut them out. I colored them using milled lavender, dusty concord, and chipped sapphire. I trimmed the flowers down to match the masked ones and adhered them flat.

I stamped the sentiment (Lawn Fawn, Critters in the Forest) in jet black archival ink (Ranger).

For the bottom portion of the card I punched (EK Success) a piece of black and a piece of white. The white I colored with dusty concord and chipped sapphire.

To complete the card I added some purple pearls, a lavender ribbon, and bow.

Thanks for stopping by. I have been pretty crafty this week so I'll probably be back later today with another card to share :)
