Let's Party! - Lawnscaping Challenge #133 Mood Board Inspired

Hellooo... It's time for another card challenge. It's a birthday card theme inspired by the mood image board from the current Lawnscaping Challenge #133. 

The challenge this week is to create something based on the board below. Click on the image to learn more about Lawnscaping Challenges. 

My first thought when I approached this card was to incorporate the colours from the inspiration image and make it the focal point. That is why I used distress inks on the background and kept the images very light so the background can stand out. 

I blended the background on watercolour paper which I then cut it using the stitched rectangle die. I used the same die on black cardstock and trimmed it keeping only the top and bottom. Then I used a border die to create the line of holes and attached it the background with foam tape. 

I glued a piece of string behind the banner so it looks like the elephant and rabbit is holding it. Lastly, I adhered all the coloured images on to the card. 

Materials used:

- Mama Elephant - Ella & Friends stamp
- Lawn Fawn - Party Animals stamp for the sentiment
- Lawn Fawn - Blue Skies stamp for the banner
- Mama Elephant - Fine Trimmings
