This week's Lawnscaping Challenge is to use Lawn Fawn stamps in an unconventional way. Since I turned Lunar Lights into Christmas bulbs for the last challenge (see this card), I couldn't use that idea again. Instead, I used the dress from the brand spankin' new Happily Ever After set (a wedding set), and made it into a prom card.

Now, I never gave or received cards before prom, but I envisioned something glamorous like giving this card to my daughter before her prom. Except that she's 5...and she's not allowed to date until she's at least in her 20s...but that's what I thought of.

I used the sketch from Sketch #106 from Card Patterns. Love that sketch! I'm also entering it into the Moxie Fab Paper Piecing Challenge. Here's the card:

This new stamp set is adorable (like all of them). I'm lucky enough to live by a retailer that sells Lawn Fawn stamps (A Walk Down Memory Lane), so I picked up this set and the new bun in the oven set. The papers are Basic Grey June Bug, which is so cheerful for spring!

I also picked up the new Maya Road satin pleat ribbon in hot pink. Hubba hubba! I twisted it into a boutonniere and used some May Arts wire ribbon to twist around the bottom. The other flowers are Prima.
I used Lawn Fawn's Jessie's ABCs to make a sentiment. I love how I can make any sentiment!

Thanks for looking!

Here's What I used:
Cardstock: Blue & raspberry (Bazzill)
Patterned Paper: June Bug (Basic Grey)
Stamps: Happily Ever After & Jessie's ABCs (Lawn Fawn)
Ink: (ColorBox)
Die: circle (Spellbinders)
Ribbon: Pink Pleat Ribbon (Maya Road); yellow (May Arts)
Flowers: Prima
Rhinestones: Kaisercraft
