Happy 5th Birthday Lawn Fawn!!

Hi all!! Kari back with you from the FB Inspiration Team and I am excited about this post as it is a special one.  Today is a celebration of Lawn Fawn!  Lawn Fawn is the reason why we have this challenge blog, because we love the company and everything about it!  For me personally, I started stamping and creating cards right about the same time Lawn Fawn came about, so it is my tried and true stamp company!  They have come a long way, and have provided us as crafter's with some awesome products to use for our creativity!  They started out with just stamps - and now they have pretty much anything you need for your projects - from stamps, to paper, to dies, to twine, to embellishments, and they just introduced their own line of ink!

So - I wanted to make a special birthday card to celebrate their 5 years!!

I used some new products and some older which is only fitting I think.  I started out by creating the embossed background and embossed it in gold embossing powder.  I then die cut from the Party Balloons die set, the heart from New Leaf card stock, and I also die cut the number "5" from Quinn's 123 die set from Audrey Blue card stock.  I also stamped the coordinating stamp onto the die cut and embossed it as well in gold.  I also die cut one of the strings from the Party Balloons die set True Black card stock.  I set those pieces aside.  I stamped the microphone from "Stay Tuned" in Lawn Fawn Black Licorice ink.  I fussy cut the microphone out ( which I normally don't like to do ) and I wanted to wrap the balloon string around the bottom.  I did a little more stamping on my main panel using some more of the new Lawn Fawn Inks in Cranberry, Fake Tan, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass, and Mermaid and I stamped the music notes also from Stay Tuned.  For my sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday from the stamp set #Awesome, and the "To" and the "You" from Thank You Tags. For a final touch I added some wink of stella to the microphone for some shimmer.  I had to be careful with it though, b/c I noticed that I had smudged the black ink a bit, which surprised me a little since this is a fast drying ink...it must be the card stock I was using.  
I put all my elements together, and placed them onto a 5 inch square card.

Happy Birthday Lawn Fawn!!!!!  Here's to many more years of happiness with awesome creativity!

See you all soon!
