For today’s card, I’ve combined the current Lawnscaping challenge with the February Sketch For You To Try layout.  Well, actually it’s the mirror image of the sketch.  I reversed it so the bananas wouldn’t be “looking off the edge” of the card. The Lawnscaping challenge is to use distressing on your project.  I chose to ink the edges of the sentiment circle.  I also sponged the circular elements on the long narrow strip in the sketch and then glued the fussy cut bananas over them.  I decided to dress up the inside of the card a bit by adding a bit of sponging to the edges of the liner cardstock and another banana just for fun.  I kept the card pretty simple, without a lot of foofy stuff, because it’s going in my Operation Write Home stash.
