Lawnscaping and Simon Says Stamp

It's such a shame to have so many stamps that you love and not to use them!

I decided it was high time to break out my Lawn Fawn stamps and put them to work with the current Lawnscaping challenge.

Here is how I interpreted the sketch (image below):


I white embossed Lawn Fawn's Teeny Tiny Backdrops on some New Leaf cardstock. The Polaroid was stamped on white and blue scraps, then trimmed and layered. Clouds and plane were stamped, trimmed and colored. That cute little heart is from Say Cheese. I added some silk ribbon and a button to finish it off.

I wanted the plane to seem like it was flying right off the card and so I put two different depths of dimensional adhesive on the back, which I attempted to photograph:


I made this a green card to go with Simon Says Stamp's current challenge: Bit o' Green. The sentiment should really say "Ireland, I would LOVE to visit!!" Could add plenty of countries to that list!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Incidentally, I got an innocent question from my 6-year-old son this morning...
"Mom, why do you make cards for nobody??"

Well, hmmmm...

I ended up telling him that I was just being prepared. One day, he may understand that making them is for ME.  :)

Oh wow. This is stunning. I love the white heat embossed stars! The polaroid and the clouds and the plane flying off the page! It's fantastic! WONDERFUL take on the sketch! This is fantastic! So glad you joined us at Lawnscaping! Hey, did you see we have new badges? Head on over to the blog and check them out! Would be honored if you would display our challenge badge on your blog!

PS. I, too, make cards for no one... They go in a shoebox. Actually, I now have 3 shoe boxes full of cards!

I love this card!! And I think you know why, but besides that, the stars on that green the clouds and plane coming out of the poloroid, and especilly the little red heart on the tail of the plane. It makes me think of Air Canada, hee hee. Love the paper piecing and colouring, too.

And Taylor's question is priceless. Be sure to say 'Hi' to him for me.
