Lawnscaping Challenge: Lawnscaping Patrol

Hi again!

Here is my card for the new Lawnscaping Challenge: Create a scene 

 Here are some close ups. I used a lot of pop-dots (dimensional adhesive) to create LOTS of layers and dimension.

I thought it would be cute to use a little Glossy Accents on the Ferris Wheel 'cars' so they looked all shiny and pretty.


I am so excited that the barber-shop stripes I did on the poles for the horses (on the Merry-go-round) worked out. they even look diagonal :)

I tried to choose really vibrant colours (and combos I'd never usually go for) to make it really child-like and exciting. Just how I remember our shows (or fairs) being.

The background for the card is simply the "Enjoy the ride" sentiment from the Lawn Fawn "Admit One" set, stamped repeatedly in three colours--Chewing Gum (pink), Lemon Drops (yellow) and Soap Powder (blue) --all Jenny Bowlin.


I hope you like it! I am really happy with my little scene :)

Take care and see you again soon I hope!
