Hay There with Lawn Fawn....

Happy Thursday everyone!! 
I am stopping by today to share a set of cards I created. 
One is inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #28
It is a sketch challenge. 

I had an idea when I saw this sketch for a trifold card. I was excited to create a scene with the 
Hay There, Toadally, and Rub-A-Dub-Dub stamp sets. 

I began by coloring all of my images. 

I used Copic markers. 
For the horses, I used E50, E31, E55, E35, E57, and E59. 

The piggy was a simple combination of YR000, R30, and R000. 

For the ducklings and the chicks, I used Y19, YR23, YR21, and E50.  

For the frog, I used YG17, YG13, YG03, YG21, YG0000. 
 I also added a bit of G99 and G94 to darken it up a bit. 

I also used the water area from the Ahoy, Matey stamp set to create the mud area for the pig. 

I then designed the base of my trifold card. 
I die cut the largest rectangle from the Large Cross Stitched Dies set from Lawn Fawn. 
This determined the size of my card base. 

I then die cut the layers I would be using to create the hills, grassy areas, and pond. 
I used the Grassy Borders, Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, Stitched Hillside Border, 
and Little Picket Fence Border Lawn Fawn dies to create the layers I needed. 

I added color to the grass areas using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. 
For the pond, I used Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers. 
To create the clouds in the sky I used the Puffy Cloud Border die 
from Lawn Fawn. I die cut two of the borders on a piece of scrap paper 
and used that as a mask. 

I also created a matching card using the Scalloped Box Pop-Up card die from Lawn Fawn. 
I was super excited to use this die set! 

I used the same colors to color these images in, and I used the same dies as well. 

 For the sunflowers, I used the Happy Harvest stamp set. 

I hope you enjoy these cards I created to share with you today!! 
Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day! 

Challenges For Fun~

I also wanted to say a Huge Thank you to the 
Lawn Fawnatics team for featuring my card:
