Sweet and Sour thank you


Hello!  Just popping in tonight to share a card I made for a sweet blogging buddy, Lisa of Bellalistona.  (Hi, Lisa!)  She was kind enough to send me some fantastic stamps from DeNami Designs, including this fun citrus slice.  Isn't it cute?

I started by stamping the fruit slices across a white cardstock panel and coloring them with my Prismas in shades of lemon and lime (my Stamp-a-ma-jig came in very handy!).  The panel is debossed with PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate to complement the orange peel texture on the yellow Bazzill card base.

I thought it would be fun to use this "sweet" sentiment from PTI's Signature Greetings to go with the sour fruits!

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (True Black, white), Bazzill (yellow)
Stamps:  DeNami Designs (Medium Citrus Slice), Papertrey Ink (Signature Greetings)
Ink:  Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories:  button, DMC floss

That's all for tonight!  I hope to catch up on some challenges tomorrow, so come back soon!  Thanks for stopping by, friends.

This is so fun Christina! I love those fruit slices and the way you stamped them all over the panel. Great use of the sentiment too! Love this card!

This is so lovely! I love the added button for the sentiment! My 17-year old son is a lemon/lime lover, this gives me some inspiration :) PS: I told him to come have a peek and he said :"it's COOL!!"!

Ok, how awesome is this card! This is just so perfectly summery. Makes me want a fresh glass of lemonade (or limeade, I'm not picky!!)
How long did it take you to colour those in?
Goodness me!!

Such a SWEET card, Christina! I love the colors, and this sentiment works so well with the Citrus Slice!

P.S. Next week we're announcing the theme of the September Blog Hop....something tells me you have the stamps to join in. *wink wink*
