that's fintastic

Quite a few of the design team at Lawnscaping Challenges have been using their new Lawn Fawn So Jelly and Fintastic Friends stamps, and I just had to give them a go too as they've mostly been unused since buying a few weeks ago.

Lawnscaping Challenge 109 was 'sparkle & shine', and since buying my first Pretty Pink Posh sequins I've used them on everything so this one was easy for me :)

I've attempted a bokeh background, starting off with a selection of blue distress inks, and circle template cut from a sheet of acetate. I was quite pleased with my first effort :)

Edited to add: this won me the queen of green
