lawnscaping challenge - inspired by!

i love mondays! they usually mean it's time for a new lawnscaping challenge! and today is one of those great days! 
the new challenge this time is all about inspriration! and more importantly, being inspired by one of our very own lawnscaping desgin team members!! woah! how do you pick?!

i think that may have been my hardest challenge...narrowing it down to one card from one person! lol!!

but manage i did! (what a great problem to have, right?!) i chose this stellar card from Christiana ! i love that crocodile image and the bokeh and the happiness card that whole card exudes!!

and here's my card:

i decided to CAS her card! i colored in the crocodile (from critters down under) with some copics and popped him up for dimension!
the bokeh was created with the oh so FUN gold delicata ink pad! i used three different sized heart shapes and stamped them directly and one off multiple times for the background! :)
the hearts were from peace love joy, into the woods, and summertime charm.

then i had some fun! lol! i added some die cut vellum to mimic waves and very ligthly colored the top edges with distress ink! um, people - i'm in LOVE! lol!!

so that's it! and as you can see, my love affair with vellum continues! :)
