Flowers and Rain Drops

For my first card, I wanted to play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge since it was being sponsored by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooking, because I love Lawn Fawn stamps and I love to use sketches. Do I need anymore reasons!!!

Here is the sketch.

Oh yes, it also let me use my 903 Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch that I love, my new Cricut and my brand new Cindy Loo cartridge!!!
Notice this close up of the punched border on the glitter, green cardstock.  I love these punches because of the different kinds of punched looks you can get out of one punch just by using different plates. 
This view gives you a close up of my flower and stem that was cut with the Cricut Expression and the Cindy Loo cartridge. I cut it three times so I could create the different layers. 

Now for my project using the Unscripted sketch for this week.  I just knew I needed to create a layout with this great sketch.
I took advantage of the space and used three photos. Notice how cute this It's Raining, It's Pouring collection of papers by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker is with these rain related photos.
This big flourish design is cut with the Cricut Expression (Storybook 5"). I find it amazing at how easy it is to cut any of the designs about any size you want

The title letters were also cut with the Cricut Expression  (Stamping 2") and after I had them glued to my page, I coated them with Aleene's Paper Glaze.
