A New Site for Lawn Fawn Challenges!


Hello... gosh I feel like I've been gone so long, yet it was just one day without creating and posting! I actually felt sluggish yesterday and it wasn't a health issue, it was that I needed my creative fix... *smile*

So today, I made this reckless little winter bunny easel card for the brand new Lawn Fawn challenges blog. It's called Lawnscaping. Check it out. The inaugural challenge is to create a project with a snow theme. I snapped up this Winter Bunny last month because he was just too cute to pass up (and a frugal bargain to boot.) I wanted him to have more than just a solid colored scarf so I paper pieced it from a small print patterned paper. After drawing and cutting out the snow jump, I doused it with glue and chunky glitter for a sparkly effect.

Deets:
Lawn Fawn stamps: Winter Bunny, Fly Free, Critters in the 'Burbs
Paper: Curio pad (Basic Grey)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic markers
Other: Divine Swirl embossing folder (Cuttlebug), chunky glitter (Magic Scraps), crystal glitter (Ranger), rhinestone stickers (Recollections), foam squares (Ranger)










Somewhere out there is a mommy bunny that's biting her nails while her baby is fearlessly flying off moguls. (I'm sure there are a few of you who can join me in knowing what that feeling is like!)





Thanks for looking and have a toasty day.....

I absolutely adore this card! The swirl embossing (love!), the chunky glitter, and the way you colored the bunny just all works so well together. I need to get out my chunky glitter and play with it more often. :) Thank you for playing along and making such a gorgeous card!
