Lawnscaping Challenge #97: Sponsored by Ellen Hutson

Happy 2015!! Here is my first project of the new year for you that's for the Lawnscaping Challenge #97. The theme for this challenge is winter Pinterest inspired images. I had a lot of fun with this challenge.

The wonderful new sponsor is Ellen Hutson. Check out the store because it is amazing! You have a chance to win a gift certificate to spend there.

On to my project for this challenge! 

I decided to use the bird and snow inspiration from the Pinterest photos in the badge for my card. The patterned paper, which looks like snow to me, is from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Snow Day Petite Paper Pack. I cut out a simple circle in the top center of the paper to create a little window for my snow scene. 

For my scene, I used the bench with Memento Luxe ink in Rich Cocoa from the Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park set. The snow on the back of the bench is also from that set. I used some Stickles to make the snow sparkle! For the little bird, I chose him from the Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends set and colored in with my Spectrum Noir Markers (TN3, TN5, TN7, OR2) and paper pieced his scarf from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Sweater Weather Petite Paper Pack.

Under the bench, which is a little hard to see in the photo, I colored in a light shadow with my Spectrum Noir Marker in IG1 and blender pen. It creates a sense of dimension there! 

The snowflakes were from the Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park and I used Memento in Summer Sky to stamp them. It's a pretty soft blue color.  Love it! 

The sentiment was stamped from the Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends set in Memento Luxe ink in Rich Cocoa. I trimmed the right edge into a pennant shape and added a simple bow using the Lawn Trimmings Natural Hemp Cord. You must get some of that!!!

I hope you join us in the challenge! You have until Wednesday, January 14th to enter. You can view all the details at the Lawnscaping blog. Hope you enjoyed the project.
