lawnscaping challenge: embossing!

I had so much fun participating in the lawnscaping blog hop, and I thought I would keep the lawn-fawn-fun going with the current lawnscaping challenge.

Hay there!

I paper-pieced myself a little barn scene out of newsprint patterned papers (and more gingham again, like no other patterns exist!) using lawn fawn's "critters on the farm" set.  A little barn and 2 huge bales of hay.  And a little banner in the background (from "bannerific") because I've been spending way too much time on Pinterest drooling over all kinds of barnyard weddings and parties... so chic - I love it!

The die-cut scallop at the bottom is PTI, and the awesome embossed-striped background is courtesy of an SU folder.  I love how bold is it!

thanks for looking!
