Lawnscaping #16

Hi everyone

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

I must say this was quite challenging! I hardly never ever do one layer cards =) But I'm happy with how it turned out in the end. Here are pictures of the card:

I had an idea to make the stork, from Lawn Fawn's "Plus One", carry two bags, for a mom or family expecting twins. I had to slightly change the placing of the original bag to make the image look more balanced (at least to my eyes).
I made a reverse mask by cutting masking paper with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die, and placing it over my cardfront. I then stamped my image, colored it in, and masked it off. I used a handcut cloud-mask, and sponged the blue background using Hero Arts' "Soft Pool" ink. I used sentiments from the same stampset to stamp my greeting. I simply used an 's' from a sentiment on the stampset to make 'bundle' say 'bundles' instead.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
