Lawnscaping Challenge #31

Good evening! I've been meaning to post this card, but of course I wait until late at night. I should be in bed, so I'll make this quick!

I made this card for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge. The challenge is to make a card that incorporates coloring with whatever you want to use. I chose to use colored pencils - my favorite! Of course I had to use the Gnome Sweet Gnome set, so here's my card:

I colored the flamingos with colored pencils and made the "male" flamingo a darker color than the "female." There were a lot of first for me in this card. This was the first time that I tried mirror stamping and I think it turned out pretty well! This was also my first attempt at distressing paper! I found some sandpaper and I distressed the edges of the yellow paper and it was really fun! I might start using mirror stamping and distressing more often!

I also made this card for the latest CAS-ual Friday Challenge, which was to create a card based on a song. I obviously chose "You Are my Sunshine" and I think it's fitting because we've had some gorgeous weather here lately!

Well, thanks for stopping by! Good night!
