Thinking of you - Lawnscaping challenge #28

Hi there!
Today is very warm for a Winter day, the sun shines in the sky and I feel happy and inspired :) Finally, I'm feeling crafty again and I've been drawing some sketches for future cards with the new Lawn Fawn stamps, I can't wait to play with them!
But now, I want to show you the card I made for the Lawnscaping challenge #28: Distress Mania. What a fun challenge!


I colored all the elements on my card with Distress inks and then I wanted to give a more distressed look using fabric for the heart and clouds. I think it'd be perfect the "Thinking of you" sentiment from Sophie's sentiments but as I don't have that set, I tried to make something similar using Harold's ABCs and stamping each letter separately. I hope you like it! This little hedgehog is so sweet!



Supply list:
- Lawn Fawn stamps: "Critters in the forest", "Bake me a cake" and "Harold's ABCs"
- Distress inks: "Tumbled glass", "Broken china", "Antique linnen", "Vintage photo", "Shabby shutters", "Evergreen bough", "Peeled paint" and "Festive berries".
- Baker's twine
- Memento "Tuxedo black" ink
- Sizzix circle die
- White cotton fabric
