Lawn Mower's Broken!

It's Thursday already and there's a new challenge on the DRS Designs Blog. The theme this week is The Great Outdoors!

This is the card I made to knock out 2 birds with one stone--the DRS challenge and Father's Day. My Father-In-Law hates to mow the lawn so I thought this would be perfect tor him. I know he'd much rather be sitting in the shade on a sunny day with a nice cold drink in his hand.

For the little scene I created on the card front, I stamped the Brush Lawn Mower (866K) off to the right and stamped the Easy Grass Background (059E) along the bottom. Then I shaded in the area using Copic Markers creating a grass texture. I sponged blue ink around for the sky background, and then I stamped, sponged, and matted the Broken Mower Greeting (863G) in the empty space to the left of the mower. I adhered the card front to a 5.5" x 4.25" red cardstock base and then stamped the On Father's Day (034D) sentiment at the top to finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this card as much as my Father-In-Law appreciated it! 
Thanks for stopping by!
