Lawnscaping Challenge #20

This week's Lawnscaping Challenge is to use paper piecing on your project:

I chose to use the fireplace from Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas and I paper pieced it with some patterned paper from American Crafts Boo! line (from last year). Then I used a small piece of patterned paper from American crafts current Halloween line to put inside the fireplace (Night Crawler from the Night Fall line). I then cut the pumpkin from yet another piece of American Crafts patterned paper (Halloween Night also from Night Fall-the same piece I used behing the main panel on my card) and stuck him on top of my fireplace. Can you see the little mouse beside the pumpkin? That is actually the mouse from Lawn Fawn's Critters on the Farm set. I just stamped him on some Shrinky Dinks paper, colored him, cut him out and shrank him down with my heat gun. For the finishing touch, I stamped the ghost from Lawn Fawn's Happy Haunting on the same patterned paper that I used for the inside of the fireplace, cut him out and adhered him to the card with foam dots. The sentiment is also from the Happy Haunting set.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable! I love the way you combined images from Nightfall and Lawn Fawn to come up with such a spooky little scene.
