Lawn Fawn Wedding Card!

I can't hold back with my latest creation! After struggeling for a couple of days with the requirements for an ordered wedding card, I started and finished it yesterday evening.
How did it come to this card? A friend of mine told me that she is attending a wedding in two weeks and wanted a special wedding card. Her collegue and his wife to be just recently purchased a flat with garden. So the wedding gift is money for interior and garden supplies handed over with a special card. My friend didn't want an elegant white wedding card so I thought and thought how the "garden and house theme" fits with the wedding topic.
As I don't have many wedding/love dies and/or stamps I borrowed a couple of things from my best friend. I am glad that we share our supplies when needed!!!

So for the background I ended up with the Love Background stamp from CraftEmotions. Furthermore, I used the Lawn Fawn stitched hillside borders and the Picked Fence Creative Cut from Mama Elephant. The little tulips are made with a little punch from Eduscho I bought years ago and hardly use it anymore. The house, big flowers and the lantern are from the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Fairy Friends". I added two toadstools and a shamrock as lucky charms for the newlyweds using stamps from the efco "Viel Glueck" set. I finished up with lots of wink of stella on all objects.

I hope my friend and the newlyweds like it!

First ombre background card!

After I saw the YouTube video from Jennifer McGuire about how to make easy ombre background cards, I had to try it immediately and I LOVE the outcome. This is the first card I made that evening. The only thing that Jennifer didn't say in her video was, that it takes quite long to finish one card.
