Simon Says Stamp! sketch challenge


Hi everyone,

This is my 4th week guest designing for the Simon Says Stamp! challenge blog.This week's challenge (#122) is Dawny's Sketch and the design team is using Lawn Fawn stamps. Here's what's up for grabs...

Here's the sketch:

and here's my card:

I only have one Lawn Fawn stamp set... so far. ;) I really wanted to use it for this challenge and so I had to get extra creative with it and use other elements with the sentiment from the set to make it work.

Here is a list of the supplies I used:

- Say Cheese Too (Lawn Fawn)
- Spotted Owl (Jillibean Soup) 6x6 paper pad
- Dutch Mustard Soup (Jillibean Soup) 6x6 paper pad
- Grass Layering Paper (Hero Arts)
- Mustard Seed Distress Ink (Ranger)
- Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger)

Before you leave I just wanted to let you know about some fun thing going on over at Simon Says starting next week.
