"Cruising Through Life" Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek!

Hey there, everyone!!  Tonight we are sharing with you the set that is my very favorite from this inspiration week, "Cruising Through Life".  You are going to just love the fun and whimsical images & sentiments in this set!!  It is fabulous!

I used CardPatterns Sketch #115 to help out with the design of my card, and I just flipped the banner to the other side to make it work for me!  I also created this for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: Some Royal Fun, where I was inspired by the fun banner flags & the pink/blue color combo...I just happened to add in a bit of yellow to mine. I also created this for Lawnscaping Challenge #10, to use polka dots.  Here is my card!
  "I Love Cruising Through Life with You" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (textured cream) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Papers: My Mind's Eye (Lush: Pink Floral & Blue Damask), Glitz Design (Hoopla: Polka), & Webster's Pages (small pink dot)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Cruising Through Life set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: dune, old rose) 
Lace: craft supply
Twine: May Arts
Flowers: Recollections
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft 
Diecut Cartridges: Wild Cards & Plantin Schoolbook by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Load a 12x12 cream cardstock sheet into a Cricut Expression, press the "Fit to Page" option and cut the scalloped shaped card (5 3/4") using the Wild Cards cartridge.  Load a block of smooth vintage cream cardstock, and cut a circle at 5 1/4" using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  Cover a portion of the bottom of the circle with pink dotted paper and adhere to the middle of the scalloped card.  Stamp the sentiment, bike and pinwheel stick to the top half of the card.  Add a strip of lace trim to the bottom, and accent with a pink pearl strip and yellow paper flower.  Stamp the pinwheel to small pink dotted paper, cut out, and adhere to the top of the stamped stick.  Add two paper flowers to the bike's basket, and accent the middle of the pinwheel with a pearl.  Stamp the banners to patterned paper, cut out and thread onto natural twine.  Adhere to the left side of the card, add two twine bows to each end, and accent with pearls.  Accent the bike's wheel middles with pearls to finish.

I am super excited to see what all the other Lawn Fawn designer's have created with this set, so be sure and check them out as well!!
