Lawnscaping Challenge #54

EDITED : 30 MARCH
HONORABLE GNOME AT LAWN FAWN CHALENGE
******************************************************

Finally, it's Friday.... it's not that I work fulltime but I am so happy for the children and DH to have the weekend off.


Today's card is all about stitching.  I had so much fun making this card.  The background panel is stamped by using the Lawn Fawn Blissful Botanicals and the smaller panel is from The Alley Stamps Background Check.  Both panels are machined stitched.  5 banners are cut and faux stitched along the sides.  I love the koala which is colored in red (I don't feel like using the natural colour) and made another banner for the smaller panel which is actually from a party hats from the set Hats off You.

As for the inside, I made a pocket for a gift card and also for a short message on the little card.  I am also entering this card into the following challenge : Scrapbooker's ParadisePenny Black and More

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

What super stitching they way you have covered the blue and the white Lai -Yoke, it takes me all my concentration to do a straight line let alone try that.

And such a lovely idea with the pocket inside.

Love this little red koala! He's sweet. The pocket you created is very interesting, too. I never think to do that on a card...have to remember to give it a try. It's pretty!
