Ugh...It's always hard going back to work after a 3 day weekend, but before my long weekend is over I wanted to enter this week's Lawnscaping Challenge : Stamp a Scene!  I was inspired by a post on using Lawn Fawn dies in different ways and love Lawn Fawn's Admit One stamp set.  Using these as my inspiration I came up with this...

Can ya tell it's a Merry Go Round?  I hope so!  This is probably the longest I've ever spent on a card trying to get the ideas of a Merry Go Round and turning it into a 3-Dish card.  So how did I make this?  Here we go...

The "canopy" of the merry go round is from the stamp set A Birdie Told Me and cut using the new Lawn Cuts matching dies!  Can you believe it?  It made the perfect canopy top!  I then took some random critters and paper pieced them because I have yet to perfect my coloring skills.  There's something about paper piecing that thrills me when it all comes together.  I rolled up some paper to make the poles for the critters to be on and to make the floor of the ride used an embossing folder for texture. 

I took another picture to try to capture the dimension of the card.  So that's it for me...hoping everyone has a great week!
