Lawnscaping 100th Challenge: Lawn Fawn Birthday Cards

Hello  &  Welcome!  I decided to throw together a last minute post sharing a couple cards I created in honor of Lawnscaping Challenges 100th blog challenge.  I have always admired this site for all their inspiring ideas using some of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamps and I was so excited to actually find the time to play with a few of them myself yesterday.  This week's challenge is all about Birthdays!!!  :)

Up first a happy little Leapin' Dachshund card (using Critters from The Dog Park, Hats Off To You, Birthday Tags & Spring Showers dies).  I used the dies to create masks and then airbrushed my background with copic markers.

I actually remembered to take a picture of the colors I used for this one.  Hooray (I'm always so bad at that part).  ;)

I had time to squeeze in a second card with a more girly slant.  For this one I let one of the original Lawn Fawn sets take center stage (using Bake Me A Cake, Belinda's Borders, Birthday Tags & Chit Chat for the flower print).

I had a lot of fun with this one.  The "patterned paper" strip and glow of the candles turned out just the way I had envisioned.  To finish off my candles I added a touch of glossy accents to the flames.

Unfortunately my streak of taking photos of the markers didn't last long as I didn't remember to do it for this one.  :(

Thanks so much for stopping by and a big thanks to Lawnscaping Challenges for inspiring me to play along.
