Good Morning & Happy Tuesday Everyone!

It's time for another Loves Rubberstamps challenge & this week we're asking you to create cards with an outdoor scene.  I used the cloudy day embossing folder to make my clouds, big shot for the butterflies & stamped the tree along with the sentiment.  I made the grass with my paper snips...I'm not very good at it yet but for my first time making something like this---I think I did a pretty good job!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!

How to play:
Just upload a creation that follows this week's challenge to your online blog or gallery. Then leave a link to your project in the linky widget at the bottom of the post.
