lawnscaping challenge #104 - sketch!

good morning!

today is a brand new Lawnscaping Challenge! and this time, we're using a sketch! i LOVE sketches! 

i had a lot of fun creating my card (read: i made about 4 different backgrounds and had 4 different ideas before i finally settled on this one! ha!)! and i used the adorable and new Wheelie Like You stamp set!
that hamster?! eeeeeee!!

to create the background, i used two different stencils and some embossing paste! then once the embossing paste was dry, i placed the stencils back on top and lightly watercolored on some distress ink to add a subtle bit of color! I used antique linen for the two areas, and spun sugar for the other area.

i stamped and colored the hamster and wheel and fussy cut them and popped them up! hello dimension! then i used a vellum die cut circle and lots of reckless stitching! ha!! finally i threw in some wadded up thread behind the vellum circle and splattered with black mist! THE END! 
this was so much fun to make!
