lawnscaping challenge #101 - dots & stripes

wow! so...february happened! ha!
and what a month! the Lawnscaping Challenge celebrated their 100th challenge and it was a party and super fun celebration!

but, today starts a brand new Lawnscaping Challenge! so let's get right on to it, let's us some dots and stripes!

FUN! there's SO much you can do with that! i'm super excited to see what everyone creates!

the idea for my card hit me a few weeks ago, and i just KNEW i had to get to it and make it come to life! 

he he he! I used part of the ferris wheel from Admit One and the world image from Wish You Were Here! how perfect does it go with the sentiment? ha! all of the images were colored with copics, and the ferris wheel part was popped up for some dimension!

for the background, i used Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks to create the yellow 'glow'. then with a striped stencil on top, i sprayed lots of water and blotted it off with a paper towel! LOOOOVE the tone on tone, subtle stripes it created! 

and of course, the dots are strips of washi tape on the side! so FUN! love how this came out! 

so that's my cardare you ready to play along?
