Lawnscaping Challenge #33 – Clean and Simple

It’s a time for another for another Lawnscaping Challenge. This one is sure to be a favorite, because there are soo many possibilities!

This may be the funniest Clean and Simple card I’ve ever made. That’s not to say I don’t like it. In fact, I very much like how this card turned out. I just find it funny that a card with such a simple design and few elements contains so much hand cutting, outlining and intricate paperpiecing. It’s quite counter-intuitive to the CAS name! However, I find cutting and paperpiecing really therapeutic and great for when I’m watching tv, so I would still consider this a simple card. Simple but effective design with one of my favorite techniques!

Those gorgeous (and easy to cut out) butterflies were stamped with the new Flutter By stamp set onto Lawn Fawn’s Bright Side patterned paper in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut them out, glued the pieces together and adhered them with foam adhesive to my card base. Then all was left was one of my favorite sentiments, the “I love you” from Love ‘N Breakfast. I love that font so much!

I hope you had a great NSD and celebrated by doing something crafty! My day was full of scrapbooking during the afternoon (I’ll make sure to share some layouts with you this week), and my night was filled with way too much drama. Hanging out with friends to celebrate Cinco de Mayo went off without a hitch (and I got to see many friends I haven’t seen since I left for Spain), but on the way home, it was incredibly rainy and thunderstormy. And then this happened.

My roommates and I were unlocking our door as the lightning struck the transformer on the same block as us, and I’ve never been more momentarily terrified in my life! Thankfully, no one was hurt and we even have out electricity and gas back now. Some would say I’m unlucky for getting caught in a storm. I say I’m blessed to be alive and healthy.

So needless to say, I’m going to be taking it easy for the next day or so. Haha! Love you all and I’ll be back tomorrow with more crafty goodness. <3
