Lawnscaping Challenge Blog Hop - sponsored by The Ink Road

Yay! It's the Lawnscaping Challenge Facebook Team Blog Hop again.

Our sponsor is  :  The Ink Road.  Yay!

A small introduction to The Ink Road, 

The Ink Road is an adorable shop run by the fabulous Lara Smith.  Her store is filled with all kinds of adorable crafty goodies from stamps (she carries our beloved Lawn Fawn) to dies to supplies to journals and planners! If she doesn't have it, she can get it. 

She also price matches... . AND YES, she ships internationally. When you receive your order, you will smile because the packaging is absolutely adorable! Each order is filled from the creative heart! Be sure to check her out at her shop and her blog.

The winner of this hop will win a $25 gift certificate. How great is that!



For this month, we are using the colour : Pink! I wanted to go away from the white cardbase and went for a black cardbase. I don't do this often and it's out of my comfort zone but I hope you'll still like it.

I watercoloured some flowers and leaves from the Flutter By set. And the embossed frame and sentiment are from the Flirty Frames set. I used the same pink to add a little line at the bottom of the card but to my horror :( I just realised after I've uploaded my photo that the line wasn't straight :( Hope you'll still like it.









The winner will be chosen at random from the comments from any of the hopper's blogs so be sure to comment on everyones posts and be inspired :) You will have until midnight Sunday EST to comment to be eligible for the $25 Gift Certificate from The Ink Road.



Now, go hopping!

  35. Hi Marina! I love the white embossed on black card stock and framed by flowers. I never think to use white embossing powder on black. I don't know why. I spent something like 5 minutes searching for a white gel pen at Wal-mart last evening while shopping! And left with none. I decided on some colored gel pens instead. Then when I got home, I was thinking why don't I just use white embossing powder on black CS! LOL Sometimes it's takes this route or journey for me to arrive where I need to be! Thanks, Paulette S.
