sending hugs

today i have a card i made for the challenge over at lawnscaping - making patterned paper with stamps! 
challenge accepted! :)

i made this card for my grandpa, so i wanted it to have a bit of a masculine edge. my grandpa can be described in a word as 'dapper', so i had to try to match that! :)

i used a bunch of lawn fawn stamp sets: flying by, on the mend, critters down under, say cheese, plus one and gnome sweet gnome! whew! :) i also used some lawn fawn twine! love!

the stars on the polaroid are from plus one, the dottted waves are two stamps from gnome sweet gnome, and the pattern on the paper airplanes are the leaves from critters down under! :)
the background is also sprayed with a lot glitter mist.

the paper airplanes are popped up for just a little dimension. i punched out some hearts and added them to the paper airplanes. they're also know how sometimes you don't know when to stop? either... :) ha ha!

this card is subtle and to the point, exactly like my grandpa! so i hope when i send it his way, he really does feel like he's getting hugs!
