Lawn Fawn challenge

I found Lawn fawn's challenging blog and was so geeked about it I had to give it a try. I won the Lawn Fawn stamps thru (I think) Cards for Kids. Well they are the cutest little things and the quality of the actual stamps is very high. I use the Harold ABC's all the time because they are the perfect font for any occasion and are always the perfect size for what I need be it a card or a scrapbook page. So the challenge for Lawn fawn was to case one of Kelly Marie's cards. I'm not able to pull the card over to my blog like I normally am so HERE is the link to her card and then here is the card I made using her card as my inspiration. The only thing you must do is use your Lawn Fawn stamps for the challenge. Well yeah! Who wouldn't want to:)

Well the next part of this card is the striped patterned paper is by JLJ Designs. Here is a LINK to this paper pack that she sells. You will see the others awesome papers on my blog these next couple of weeks because the colors are so perfect for Valentines day and for another something I am working on. She was kind enough to donate 6-8 digital papers for my St Jude cards. Be sure to see the right side bar for the link on information on how you can get involved and send in cards for these ill children. With just a little fuss you can brighten a child's day. That's all for now. I will have a layout to share in a few hours. Hope you are sleeping well.
Best wishes
Cindy
This card also goes for the following challenges:
Lawn Fawn Challenge- Casing
My time to craft-spots and dots
Tuesday Throwdown-Valentine
Tip top Tuesday-Sentiment on the front
My tip for this card is using old products and making them new again. I'm trying to use up what I have and doing so you need to be creative or inventive. For this card the circle paper is from Provo Craft's Bitty scrap pads. They may still sell them but I know my mom and I bought all of them many years ago. I took the paper and used the Cricut to cut a circle . I then used Regal Rose pink by Stampin up with a cosmetic wedge and in a circular motion covered the entire circle. After that I used Tim Holtz distressing ink Walnut Stain along the outside of the circle using one of his blending tools to accent the edge of the circle more. I used a small Stampin Up heart stamp in the Regal Rose color but would stamp it off first and then stamp it on my circle. I used this same technique with a clear heart stamp that I don't know where it came from. And that is how my old paper became what it is today:)
