Lawnscaping Challenge #97: Sponsored by Ellen Hutson!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge!

We have a few changes going on at Lawnscaping! Thank you SO much to Simon Says Stamp for sponsoring us the last two years! They have been amazingly kind and generous and we probably wouldn't be where we are today without their sponsorship!

With that being said, we have a new sponsor to welcome into the family! You may have noticed from the challenge badge. The wonderful, fabulous Ellen Hutson!!!! Certainly you are familiar with her and her store, but if not, a little bit about the store in her own words:

Ellen Hutson, LLC began their adventure in November 2006 as an online web store committed to bringing you the finest paper crafting products and related product education. They are always looking to provide their customers with quality products, excellent customer service, and education and inspiration for the products they carry. You can shop with Ellen by clicking HERE. As well please join them to be inspired and learn some fun techniques in the CLASSroom, or stay up-to-date on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

Ellen Hutson will be sponsoring our first challenge of each month in 2015! The prize? A $25 gift certificate to the online store! Thank you Ellen!

And now, onto my card!

I used Lawn Fawn's Frosties and Winter Fox sets to create this card.  To create the background, I blended some Distress Inks together and then spritzed some water onto them.  I let the card dry (I know - I can't believe I was that patient, either!) and then added the fox.  I had stamped him on a separate piece of cardstock and colored him in with Spectrum Noir markers.  I also stamped him on the actual card base, so I could have those darling little steam lines on the card, too! :)

The snowflakes were heat embossed with Ranger white embossing powder in the background.  As much as I hate the snow (hey - don't judge - I live in Chicago!), I LOVE my winter-themed stamps!

I hope you will play along with us to win that awesome Ellen Hutson gift certificate! Good luck and Happy New Year!
