Lawn Fawn So Thankful For You Lawnscaping Challenge

Goodmorning lovelies and happy Wednesday! Today I wanted to share with you my Card that I made for the Lawnscaping challenge this month. The challenge this time is "Texture'! I loved this challenge and had a ton of fun making my card. This challenge is sponsored by Ellen Hudson.
Here is my card that I created! I used a total of 9 different Lawn Fawn stamp sets. I absolutely love making scenes cards and mixing my sets. Four of the stamp sets are from the newest release. This is my first card using my new sets and I'm so happy with it. As soon as I saw those cute little mice I knew that sweet little mouse needed a little mouse house.
For the texture portion of my card I used embossed paper for the background and I also used distress water color paper to add some texture a watercolor looking background. I just got my very first water color set this week, and this is my first card using it. I had so much fun water colouring and I can see a ton more happening in my upcoming cards. I also used the Lawn Fawn grassy border die to create some layers of grass to also give the card some texture. I water colored one layer of the grass to give it a textured look.
My absolutely favorite part about this card is how I used the little gingerbread house from the set "Sweet Christmas" and made it into a little house for the mice. It doesn't look like a gingerbread house at all on this card. I love stretching my stamps and getting as many uses out of them as I can. Whenever I create a card that is how I challenge myself. For the stamped images I used Copic markers. The pumpkins were colored using E57, Y38 and YR04. I left the fence plain white and added some bows from the Baaah Humbug set (you ladies know I am obsessed with bows). I coloured the bows up using G40 and G24. The little mice are from the set Thankful Mice set. I coloured the girl mouse using C4. w3 and W1. For the boy mouse I used Y35, C3 and 100 for the hat and W3 and W1 for the body. I used R20 for the cheeks of both mice and added some cute dots with my white gel pen. The mug is from the set Holiday Party Animal, I added a little heart in the middle which was from the set Thankful Mice. The pie is also from the Holiday Party Animal set and u used C4, C2, E55 and E53 to colour it up. The little clouds are from the set Starry Backdrops. I used the heart from the Love N Breakfast to add some cute dimension to them. I coloured the heart in using Y35. Last but not least the adorable house from the set Sweet Christmas. For the door I used G40, G24, G17 and G19. I added some Y32 to the windows to make them look like the lights inside were on and to go with the feeling of the sun setting and night approaching. I thought this gave a nice cozy autumn feeling. The roof and house were coloured with E18, E15, E13, E57 and E55. I included pictures below of the Lawn Fawn sets that I used to make this card.
Here is one more picture of my card!
