today is a brand new Lawnscaping Challenge! yay!! it's my favorite way to start a monday! ha!
for my card, i chose not to go 'red white and blue', but i did use lots of stars and stripes!!
i started by heat embossing the stars from Starry Backdrops all over my card base! (it wasn't until i literally FINISHED the card, that i thought...why are there stars in the grass!? siiiiiiigh.)
then i used Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Perserves, Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn distress inks to blend the background together. loooooove the blending people! :) i also splattered some water...because i literally can't resist that, people!! ha!
i colored the ADORABLE boxer puppy from Critters at the Dog Park and then popped him up on the heat embossed banner sentiment!
i also heat embossed the fireworks from Happy 4th onto some vellum! then i fussy cut them out and stitched them onto the card! YES i did! and i LOVE it!
