Lawnscaping SPRING Blog Hop: Sponsored by Lawn Fawn and the Sweet Stamp Shop

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Lawnscaping Blog hop! I am second on the hop! The theme for this hop is Spring!!!! I just returned from a trip to Washington DC when Cherry Blossom trees were in full bloom! So I tried my best to create a Spring scene complete with “attempting to” making a Cherry Blossom tree using the tree from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Hauntings set….

The house was colored with Distress Stains and the cherry blossom leaves were stamped with distress ink/Jenni Bowlin Bubble Gum ink.  I won’t go into the rest of the details of how I made this card because you have 38 other wonderful and talented designer’s sites to visit but if you have any questions, please let me know!!!!
