Lawnscaping Challenge #6: COLOR SPLASH!

I have long admired Lawn Fawn's stamps. Their overall design sense just gives me the "warm fuzzies." Sadly, I have been in the middle of a budget slump, meaning I can't afford any new stamps right now. It's been a long winter, and it's just killing me to see all the new stamp releases from my favorite companies, but I just can't swing it right now. It's such a catch 22, too. By the time things turn around, there will be tons of NEW releases. *sigh* Well, I am trying to enter as many challenges as I can, hoping that I can win a chance to shorten my marathon wish list.

So, this leads me to this blog post. I have been following Lawn Fawn's blog and their Lawnscaping Challenge blog for months, but I just haven't entered a challange...'til now. Unfortunately, I do not currently own any Lawn Fawn stamps (I want some sooooooo badly, though!), so I was not able to use them on this challenge, but I thought this was a BRILLIANT challenge theme: Color Splash. That means that you use all neutral colors except for one bright splash of color. Isn't that a fabulous idea? I just knew I HAD to enter this!
So, here goes...

I used an incredible background stamp by Impression Obsession, and I stamped it again on green paper and fussy cut the leaf.

Thanks for checking out my blog!

So cute, love the leaves, and it is so appropriate since you live in Nashville, Indiana. (I'm in Indy, and Nashville is one of our favorite getaways.) I absolutely love visiting Papertrix!! Back to your card, it's adorable. Thanks for joining us on the Lawnscaping challenge
