Lawnscaping Challenge 7


Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend! We had a fun one over here! Gardening and a birthday party. :D

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for another Lawnscaping challenge! Hooray! This challenge was a VERY hard one for me, Make Your Own Patterned Paper with Stamps! Ack! You might have noticed that I'm not really a "stamper" as much as I'm a "paper crafter." The precision it takes to make patterned paper isn't really in me and I actually never think mine turns out that great. However, I gave it a try and that's what matters RIGHT??

Super fabulous prize this challenge so even if it's not your cup of tea, you HAVE to give it a try! :D The prize is a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp! They have EVERYTHING! Love that store! So, don't forget to play along and link up your creation to the Lawnscaping Blog to get your entry in for this amazing prize!

Here's my card. Like I said, I'm not great at patterned paper with stamps but if I can do it, so can you! The background is make from Partly Cloudy. The tree and swing are from Critters in the Burbs, the bird is from Fly Free and the sentiment is from Just My Type, Too. I don't create a lot of scenes either so this card is WAY out of my element.
