Lawnscaping #63 - One Layer

 Good morning, everyone! I hope that you had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend! It's time again for another Lawnscaping Challenge!!

 The challenge this week is to create a one layer card. I have such a hard time creating one layer cards because I'm a fan of paper piecing and using foam tape, so this was rough! But, here is the card that I created:

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Blue Skies" stamp set. I stamped the images onto the card base and used a little bit of masking on the balloon and clouds. Then I colored the images with some Martha Stewart markers and added Stickles to give it some excitement. I tried to do a little bit of blending with the hot air balloon colors. I'm horrible at coloring!

I hope that you can play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge this week! The winner will receive a $25 give certificate from Simon Says Stamp! Awesome! :)

  Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you have a nice week! :)
