Lawnscaping Challenge #5

This week's Lawnscaping challenge was to use a stamp in an unconventional way. Since the only two Lawn Fawn sets I own are Bannerific and Cozy Christmas, I was having a hard time coming up with an idea. I ended up taking a cue from Kary's card (guest designer for the Lawnscaping challenge) and making a flower using the banners from Bannerific. I started out by stamping a circle from PTI's Borders and Corners set. Then, I inked up one of the banners and stamped it repeatedly around the circle.

After that, I stamped the same banner several times on some Basic Grey PP and paper pieced the flower petals. I finished off the center of the flower with a die cut circle and a corduroy brad. I used more Basic Grey PP for the base of my card and added the scroll banner (also from Bannerific) with a PTI sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!

Erica, I was admiring this over on the Lawnscaping blog. I didn't even realize it was yours. I really like the way you built your own flower with the banner flags.
