Distress Mania LSC #64

WOW! Back again to introduce a new Lawnscaping Challenge!!  We getting Distressed!!  This challenge is all about making your projects look Distressed with inks, sanding, etc.

Up for grabs is a gift certificate to the oh so wonderful Lawn Fawn!!  And, with there new releases about to be available very soon - now it is a great time to enter!

Here is my card for this challenge!

I used some Core'dinations paper that I had in my stash and I dry embossed my paper with a diagonal stripes embossing folder, and then sanded my paper to bring out the color core!!  I, then added some washi tape with the same color scheme that I was going for.  Then, I stamped out the polaroid from "Say Cheese" ( my very first Lawn Fawn stamp set - I treasure it!) onto some more Core'dinations paper but on the color core side to make it look "aged".  Then, I took one of the element stickers from the Dewey Decimal collection, and added it to the middle of my frame using foam adhesive.  I felt like my card needed one more thing, so I found a peach colored button in my stash and added some Lawn Trimmings to the button and adhered it to my frame.  This whole card panel was adhered to a piece of Hawaiian Shores card stock, and then onto a Kraft card base.

Hope this inspires you to enter into this week's challenge!!  I am looking forward to all the entries!!
Be sure to watch throughout the week for additional inspiration from the Facebook Inspiration Team!
