Hello! It's a Lawnscaping Challenge

Hi, I'm back with my second post for today.  This time, to play along with Lawnscaping Challenge No. 63.
This was such a fun challenge, but it took me so long to decide on a theme.  Anyway...take a look at the challenge.

I finally decided to mask a rectangle, then sponge a few clouds in the background.  Then I drew in a line (hmmm, either a telephone line or power line) for my little flock of birds.  I colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils, then stamped my sentiment.  I used a linen textured cardstock, which shows through my colors.  I think it adds so much interest though.  Fun stuff!
I'm so glad you stopped by.  I hope you'll leave a comment!

Supply list ~
Cardstock: linen textured white (Ellen Hutson)
Ink: bashful blue (SU), tuxedo black (Momento)
Stamps: critters in the burbs, critters in the forest, a birdie told me (Lawn Fawn)
Other: rectangle die to create a mask (Spellbinders), Prismacolor pencils
