Lawnscaping Sketch card

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is having a good week! I have been SUPER busy this week now that homeschooling is back in full swing! Between teaching, cooking, cleaning, laundry, and trying to find some time to exercise--it's been crazy! But, I have several b-days coming up that I needed to make sure got some attention. And I figured tonight was my best shot at getting some time in my room.

I hope everyone has been keeping up with the craze from Simon Says Stamps--they're celebrating STAMPtember and there's been tons of blog hops and chances to win! I figured I'd participate in the Lawnscaping sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp! challenge that wanted us to use a stamp on our project. Here's the sketch and my card:
I LOVED the sketch this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew what I would do with it! I used pattern paper from My Mind's Eye (Lime Twist) and some new stamps from Skipping Stones Designs. I stamped the hot air balloon on 3 different papers and then paper pieced it together. The sentiment is also from Skipping Stones. I added some faux white stitching and the card was done! Most complicated part was all the paper piecing but I really like the colors on this card!

I hope you guys can play along...there's some great prizes to be won!

Have a great rest of the week!
