Lawnscaping Distress Mainiac Challenge

This is Challenge #64 over at Lawnscaping.

This is the card I made for the challenge.

My card base is Kraft Cardstock
The second layer is from the Lawn Fawn Pink Lemonade Collection Kit.
I used Strathmore Watercolor Paper for the distress stains and stamping.

I swiped the distress stains right across the watercolor paper.

Distress Stains:    Festive Berries
                           Peeled Paint
                           Broken China
                           Dusty Concord

Lawn Fawn Stamps:   Birthday Year 3
                                 Happy 4th

It's hard to see but I covered the stars & fireworks with distress stickles and went over the
the sentiments with a clear gel pen.

Embellishments:    Doodlebug pearls
                             Lawn Trimmings Pink Lemonade.
