[DYSU] Challenge #72 - Landscapes

Good morning, everyone! What a whirlwind week. Are you guys ready for the weekend? We have a company picnic on Sunday at a park with great outdoorsy fun. If I remember right, we had that event there about three or four years ago, and there were paddle boats. But I am secretly looking forward to watermelon ;)

This week's theme at DYSU is Landscape. Yep - the DT had a toughie with this one, but there is plenty of inspiration spread across the team. We even worked on it as a team and gave each ideas how to go about it...

This week I'm working with a sponsor image by Pink Cat Studios called Happy Flower.

You are my Sunshine
Stamps: (Happy Flower) Pink Cat Studio; (Up, Up & Away) Papertrey Ink
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Fresh Linen, White) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin No. 8 - Soap Powder, No. 4 - Lemon Drops) Ranger
Embellishments: (Sewing Thread - White) Gütermann; (Precision Pen 03) American Crafts; (L'occitane Ribbon) Recycled

The landscape scene is just an everyday fun garden scene, with some grass, clouds and sun! The grass is actually made out of recycled ribbon from L'occitane...

You are my Sunshine

The grass is different lengths cut at an angle and alternated in a fun way to give it depth. I like the two tone that the ribbon had, so I had a lot of variety in color to make it work. 

You are my Sunshine

The faux stitching around the card is inspired by the ribbon and the rest of the flower just has some fun vibrant colors. Here an unclose look of the image...

This is inspired Ren-Yi! Love that ribbon grass, but am even more impressed that it's recycled. I love L'Occitane too, especially their lavender.

Love this fun card Ren-Yi. That flower really makes me smile and the upcycled ribbon is great. Seems L'Occitane is good for more than just your skin - love the stuff!!
