Starry Summer night

Hello! :)
Today I want to share the card I've been working on lately. I had this idea long time ago and I didn't find the time to work on it until now. When I saw that the current Lawnscaping challenge theme was dimension I decided that I'd join it with this card :)


I had a lot of fun adding dimension to this card, cuting and poping the different elements at different heights to create a impression of depth in the scene. I hand draw the marshmallow and the stick is a piece of tree from the "Critters Down Under" set. The moon is from "Sunny Skies" and there's a how to here. I draw the little stars with a white gel pen.

Here's a closer pic so you can see better the dimension


I hope you like it, I'm happy with the final result. I know it's a bit dark but it reminds me the awesome warm and starry Summer nights and fills my heart with peace and happiness :)

I missed the lasts Lawnscaping challenges and that makes me sad so I'm very happy to come back! If you have the chance, join the current challenge and take a look at the blog, there are tons of awesome projects to inspire you!
