Bringing the Outside Inn


Happy Birthday to my talented blogging pal, Erin, the mastermind behind the beautiful photos and posts at the Outside Inn. A mutual, and talented, blogging pal Jen, from Jen Shears Designs, and I have teamed up today to wish Erin a happy birthday in a very Erin style, by playing in a challenge (since I couldn't get in gear to organize a hop...but the thought was there!)! Both of us are participating in Lawnscaping's Use Dimension Challenge and using Lawn Fawn sets.


I brought the outside in for Erin's card today by featuring some fussy cutting and use of dimensional adhesive on the ferris wheel from Lawn Fawn's Admit One and clouds from Sunny Skies. The background sky and rolling hills were misted before attaching all to the card base.


(In another nod to Erin for her love of challenges I'm going to enter this in Moxie Fab World's Stamp It! The Birthday Card Challenge!)

I hope that you can swing by Jen's blog to see her birthday card for Erin, and then stop by Erin's blog to wish her a very happy birthday!
