Today’s card is a combination of two challenges: The colors are from Global Design Project 093, and the sketch is from Just add Ink #365.

My first decision was to use the Lemon Zest stamp set, and ink the half lime with Lemon Lime Twist.    I wonder how I thought of that? The lime was easily cut with a Layering Circles die, and I used the Lemon Builder Punch to punch a few leaves while I was at it. The lemons and limes are so pretty with the embossed Layered Leaves, so I zipped a piece of Pool Party cardstock through the Big Shot for the background.

 

 

I decided to add more leaves and citrus blossoms, so found a sheet of Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to coordinate. The embossed piece was lifted on Thick Whisper White cardstock, and the two were layered on a Pool Party card base. To complete the sketch, I used the Triple Banner Punch, and used the color Berry Burst for the sentiment.  “Happy Birthday!” in the Lemon Zest stamp set fit the banner perfectly, and I layered the Whisper White on Berry Burst for more impact. The final touch was Glitter Enamel Dots in the three colors. I love the way they sparkle!

 

 

Thank you for the inspiration, GDP093 and Just Add Ink #365. It’s been fun!
