lawnscaping challenge - polka dots

get ready! it's time for a new lawnscaping challenge! 
and i'm extra excited because it's also my mom's birthday! ha ha! (happy birthday, mom!)

this new challenge is all about polka dots, pople!!

i think my card is super fun! well, it's a shaped card, so it's got that going for it! lol!

i die cut out the banners and the card base/background. the un-polka dotted base is watercolor paper that i stamped directly on and then colored the image with my distress markers. it's hard to tell they were the distress markers, though! ha ha! not very watercolor-y! :) oops.

i used my sewing machine and sewed along the border a few times and also sewed on the banners (and around the border of the sentiment banner).

add a few pearls, and you got this beaut-e, made for my mom who, really is, so lovely! :) 

i actually only used one lawn fawn stamp set for this card...what?! i couldn't even tell you the last time that happened! lol! i used sew lovely (such a pretty and soft set!!)

for even more inspiration (if you can stand it!), check out the lawnscaping facebook page! we're dedicated to keeping your creative juices flowing! :)

this week we're sponsored by lawn fawn! so get your card making on, and you could win a stamp set of your choice! :)
