Lawnscaping Challenge #11: CAS

This is the first time I've played along with the Lawnscaping Challenge.  The challenge:  CAS using at least one Lawn Fawn product.  I thought this would give me a chance to ink up these sets again!



I have co-worker, actually she's my boss, that is really going through a hard time.  I thought these cards would cheer her up during her time off work.  I used some bright and cheery pattern paper from the MME Lime Twist collection:  Happy Go Lucky.  I just LOVE these little 6x6 paper pads.  These papers are double sided and are so pretty for paper piecing!



This first card uses the little lamp from the How Delightful set.  My lamp base was off stamped (first in True Black) and so it gave it that speckled look.  I did highlight a few of the parts of the lamp with my black Copic for detail.



My second card uses the bird from Fly Free.  I paper pieced and added in some hills cut free hand with more yummy pattern paper.  I just love how all the patterns coordinate!



Now for both of my cards, the size is 3 x 5 1/2.........I thought I would try something different with the size but still be A2 size for the envie.  I also used my Signo white pen to add some faux stitching.  I thought it kinda went with the whole whimsy touch of these cards.  That's all for today!

Stamps:  How Delightful and Fly Free (Lawn Fawn)

Eek! I've been eyeing up those pads from the new My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection since they came out, and this one is definitely my favorite. I love all the patterns. You used them so well together and yet kept it clean and simple. I love that! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Lawnscaping!

Love these, Amy! The patterns work really well in these cards and I love all the white in the cards! So pretty! I became a follower of your blog, don't know why I haven't done that before, hi hi, love what you create! Only your page is a bit slow with me, I think due to the 'snow' coming down, could that be? did you hear that more often?
Wishing you a lovely day!
Hugs, Wendy
