Lawnscaping goes CAS

I am thrilled that this Lawnscaping Challenge is all about keeping it Clean and Simple.  I am a CAS card-maker through and through and always struggle with where to place those extra embellies, or even ribbons.  And, really, Lawn Fawn stamps are so cute and fun, they don't really need any extra oomph to make a card shine.  I made this card for a lady who spoke to our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group this morning.  She shared her amazing life's journey with us, and when she was done speaking, there wasn't a dry eye in the room.  Seriously inspirational stuff.  I knew I wanted to make her a card, and what better sentiment than "you inspire me" from Flutter By.  (I have been using this set non.stop.)

I used Flutter By, colored with Copics, and covered parts of the wings with Stickles.  I also used my new Neenah Copic paper and cardstock by Papertrey Ink.  Seriously awesome cardstock.  Never going back to 80# for my card bases!

Hope you've been inspired by something today!
