Lawn Fawn Day 5 with Christy Gets Crafty Collab!

Hi friends and welcome to Day 5 and my final day of  Lawn Fawn Week!!  I can't believe it has gone by already!  Today I have a special collab with Christy Gets Crafty ( Christy Reuling ) - she is one of my best friends and crafty friends and I am I so happy she decided to do this with me!  I will have her video linked below if you would also like to check it out!  

For today's card - I wanted to do something a little different for me.  I wanted to achieve two things on my card - a monochromatic look, and I wanted to get out my colored pencils.  I haven't used them in LONG time!

For our collab - the theme was to use a new set along with an older set from LF.  I used Our Friendship Grows as my old set ( it is one of my all time favs ) and Easter Party for my new set.  I started out by creating my background onto a piece of kraft card stock.  I stamped in Versamark the flowers from Our Friendship Grows, and I heat embossed them with Rose Gold Embossing Powder from LF.  Then, I wanted to add some white highlights.  I started out using my white gel pen, but then I pulled out my white colored pencil, and that is when I made the decision to color in my girl with the pencils too!

I love how she turned out, and I got the itch to play with my colored pencils more!!  Sometime I'd like to invest in some of the Faber Castell PolyChromos pencils too.  Once I was happy with my colored image, I die cut it out with the matching die, and also a white piece of cardstock using one of the Everyday Banners, and I stamped out my sentiment from Simply Sentiments.  I added my girl to my banner with liquid adhesive, and added some foam adhesive all over the back of this entire piece.  I die cut my background with one of the Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and then I adhere my main panel to to another piece of kraft card stock.
For the inside, I stamped out the largest flower from Our Friendship Grows in Doe ink, and another sentiment from Simply Sentiments in Plastic Flamingo ink.

Well - that's it!!  This is a wrap on Lawn Fawn Week.  I still have the giveaways going on - so if you havent' checked out that video - I encourage you to.  Thank you so much again for Christy to join me for this collab!!
