It’s been a long time since I’ve made the time to play along in one of the Lawnscaping challenges, and I’ve missed doing them.  So I decided to get my act together for the current one, which is to create a one layer card.  I figured I could combine it with the current Dynamic Duos color challenge of pink and bright yellow.

So I looked through my Lawn Fawn stamps and came up with this:


Even though the card was pretty cute just like that, I felt it was missing something, particularly something to help bring out the yellow bird.  So I thought, why not fussy cut along the bottom of the heart border and add a strip of yellow cardstock to it?  I had a scrap of Daffodil Delight that was the perfect size to accomplish the look I pictured in my mind.  And after a little cutting and gluing, my card changed to this:


Ah, yes.  Much better.  And now it’s a cheery little any-age, gender-neutral card to include in my stash for Operation Write Home.

Thanks for stopping by today!
