Lawnscaping Challenge: ONE LAYER sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! Welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge! Last challenge was amazing! A lot of you like texture and so do we? Now we have gone from one extreme to the other. Last challenge was texture, this challenge is one layer! You can still use texture of course, but what you can't do is pop up stuff with dimension, add enamel dots or rhinestones, fussy cut and adhere, etc... One layer is just that... CStamping/creating all on one layer. FLAT.   Make sense? Don't be scared! It's not as bad as you think. It is actually quite fun! I promise! Give it a try....

We LOVE the amazingly wonderful peeps over at  Simon Says Stamp! They are so awesome to be sponsoring this challenge with a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp!!!!

Summertime Fun

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a fun summertime card. This little narwal is happily floating in the sea with the help of his giraffe inner tube. The balloons are the sails in this makeshift boat, and are guiding his way. I layered purple vellum on top of pattern paper to create water. The waves were created by using a border edge punch. I added sheer polka dot ribbon for added texture.
