LSC Submission #2

Well, I'm back again this morning with another submission for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge.  After I created my first card for this challenge - I had another idea in my head, and I didn't want to lose it, so I went to work, and this is my second card.  I went in a different direction with this card - bright, colorful and cheery.

With this card - I created my "pattern paper" using washi tape.  I have four different colors of this diagonal washi tape, and created this background, and to give it something a bit extra - I embossed it with my swiss dots embossing folder using my Cuttlebug.  I used the Lawn Fawn set Year One, and I embossed the birthday cake in white over some papers from Lawn Fawn's Bright Side 6 x6 pad.  I stamped out my birthday sentiment from this same set in Tangelo ink from Memento, and for an extra fun element added a mini clothespin from SU!  I put everything on dimensionals - because after all this challenge is about dimension.  To finish off, I added some Lawn Trimmings from Lawn Fawn and some Yellow Stickles for the candles.  

Here is another look at my card for the dimension....

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!  Happy Crafting!!
