Lawnscaping Challenge #15

Hey there! First of all---THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your sweet comments on the DeNami + Lawn Fawn Blog Hop!!!! You guys are THE BEST!

Today I wanted to pop in really quickly to share a card I made for the most recent Lawnscaping Challenge!!! I feel like it's been SOOOOO LONG since I've had a chance to participate in any challenges! I'm really looking forward to getting back into the blogland groove!!

Here's my creation:

I've heard of "Christmas in July." Is there such a thing as "Christmas in August"?!?! *wink* I think it's the hot weather down in town. It's making me crave snow, which in turn gets me excited for the upcoming holiday season!

I distressed the snow banks, added a touch of shading with Copic Markers, and then added a touch of sparkle with some DeNami Extra Fine Sparklets Glitter! I also distressed the edges of the patterned paper panel! (Don't ya just LOVE those patterned papers?!?! Jillibean Soup...ahhhh...)

Here's a closer look:

I am in LOVE with this Critters in the Forest set from Lawn Fawn---so whimsical and sweet---and so fun to paper piece!

I "stitched" the patterned paper panels together with the Zigzag Stitch Border from DeNami Design! The sentiment is also from DeNami---just released on July 1----LOVIN' that playful font!

So...what do you think? Are you ready to play along??? Hop on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog for all of the deets!
