Lawn Fawn Goodness and my 1st 2S4Y Challenge
Just yesterday i got in my newest Lawn Fawn Stamps - SOOOO EXCITED!! I've really been seeing beautiful things being done with both the "Bake me a Cake" and "Sew Lovely" sets that I HAD to have them ASAP. I was on the Lawn Fawn Blog yesterday and Kelly Marie made a beautiful card for the 2S4Y "Laura's Sketch 52" Challenge and it inspired me to put my newest stamps to good use and join my first challenge ;). I made 3 cards. The 1st two using Lawn Fawn's "Bake me a Cake" set and October Afternoon's Thrift Shop Papers. I LOVE how these two came out (the cupcake is my fave though!!!). When I got to the cupcake card, i made the tough decidion to cut (GASP) the Happy Birthday stamp. I was sad doing it, but I was super precise and really wanted the versatility of using it horizontal OR verticle ;). I also love these papers. So bright and frilly and fun!! Next I used the "Sew Lovely" bodice with Basic Grey's "Olivia" line - I HEART this paper so much!! So fun and girly - couldn't wait to use it. Enjoy - and go get you some Lawn Fawn!! You wont be disappointed!!
