Shape Up

Morning Crafters, have you eaten all your chocolate yet? I haven't but maybe that's because I didn't get any!
It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday and Sally came up with a brilliant theme for our, post Easter Challenge. She wants us all to "Shape Up" or rather,use shapes in our creations this fortnight.

I thought I'd do a side stepped card setting a little grassy scene for Magnum and his mower to sort out.

I used the Cricut and Plantin's Schoolbook to create the grass, layering it up and adding it to the steps along with my Copic Coloured image. Look at that cheeky Lily, relaxing whilst Magnum does all the hard work!

I used a selection of papers and die cuts along with some buttons tied with hemp to create my required shapes.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Lawnscaping 31,Colouring,
Love To Create 10, Birthday,
Make It Monday 84, Anything goes,
Paper Pretties, Lots of Layers,
PCD4, Fancy folds,
Catch The Bug, April Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,
