All about TEXTING!!

Hello! I am making another last minute entry for Lawnscaping Challenge #18 (getting texty). Details here . I took out my one and only Lawn Fawn Stamps and got right to work! I used the sentiment to create a little hill. First I embossed the sentiment in white and then applied Distress Inks over with the help of a strip paper (cut out from the stamped sentiment)---nothing too fancy!
I love cruising through life with you
I did the coloring  for the bike with Marvy Markers and added the dimensional Silver Liquid Pearl for the basket. I feel so blessed to be able to share my little cards with you every so often!
Thank you for cruising through card-making with me!
