happy summer! card

Hi everyone

Today I have a card to share that I made to enter into the current Lawnscaping challenge:

(please click on the badge to go directly to the challenge)

Here's my card:

I used two Lawn Fawn stampsets on this card. I used "Cruising Through Life" and "Jessie's ABC's". I stamped only the basket from the bicycle-stamp (from "Cruising Through Life") without the bicycle itself. I paper-pieced my image using kraft cardstock for the basket and white cardstock for the pinwheels. I colored all the pieces using Promarkers. I cut a slit in the basket, and slipped the "sticks" for the pinwheels through. I also shaped the tips of the pinwheels to give them more dimension. I drew in some lines to ground the basket as well, using my black Memento marker. I stamped the sentiment using "Jessie's ABC's". The image-piece was adhered to the green cardbase using foam adhesive. I used a white pen to add some white stiching to the cardbase as well. I finished the card off with some rhinestones in the pinwheel's centers and on the cardbase =)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Super cute card, I wish I had this set just for the pinwheels! It's on my list. I really like that you gave them dimension and a rhinestone center. I love your style, simple and cute. Thank you for the nice comments you leave on Flickr, sorry it has taken me awhile to get to your blog and do the same. :)
