Lawnscaping #19

Hi everyone!

In this post, I'll be sharing a card I made to enter into the current Lawnscaping challenge. The challenge is:

This card was actually one that I almost tossed in the trash. I didn't like the way it turned out the first time, so I added some things to it and altered it a bit, and my second attempt was at least a little bit better. I'm not too happy about it, but it's okay. I don't have time to make another card, as I have a lot of work and school things going on right now. So I'm going to go with this card even though I don't like it so much myself. Here's the card:

I didn't add a sentiment, as I couldn't see what might work for the card, theme-wise. But after editing the photos of it, I realize that this could be a anniversary card for an older couple, probably. Oh well!
Anyways, I did some reverse stamping with the hedgehog stamp, colored and cut them out. I colored the one hedghog a bit lighter than the other, to make them slightly different from eachother. I did some dry embossing on the little details of the frame, making them slightly raised from the rest of the frame, but it's not so visible in the photo unfortunantely. The frame, the hedgehogs and the little punched heart was adhered with foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Marie, I think this is fabulous! You always are such a master with the reverse stamping technique! I love the cute hedgies inside the frame and the subtle woodgrain background is fantastic! I love it.

Another clever submission! You always come up with such unique and fun cards. I agree with Laurel that you are a master of reverse stamping. I've not tried it yet and am a little scared of it. Your card is so adorable
