Lawnscaping Challenge is to use stars and/or stripes I thought I'd include both of them on my card. A normal type person would have probably made the stripes yellow to represent the sun rays or something - however, since no one has probably considered me normal I thought I'd make them blue to represent the sky! You can still have the "shine" from the windows on the lighthouse! After all, it is my card so guess I can make the stripes any color I want! LOL!
I used two Lawn Fawn sets on this card - Life is Good and Lucky Stars. Both are really nice sets and after stamping the lighthouse and coloring - and cutting it out - I realized I also had the dies to this set! Duh! When I added the birds I did remember to use the dies though!! I used a stencil and smushed out some blue ink to color the embossing paste before spreading it down for the stripes. After that dried I added some of the "sand" looking patterned paper and then the birds. The two stars were stamped with Momento ink and heat embossed - as was the sentiment after stamping in blue.
I'll enter this in the Lawnscaping Challenge - stars and/or stripes.
I'll also throw in with the entries at Darnell's challenge - that never before used shtuff - With a focus on friendship. ALL my friends just "shine" so this will be going to one of them. This is the first time I've used the Life is Good set from Lawn Fawn.
Thanks for stopping by...........
