Lime Lemonade

Altenew is starting some monthly challenges, and I'm thrilled to be able to pull out my gorgeous Painted Flowers stamp set and play along in this first one!  Here is our photo inspiration:

From the craft Room

As I said I adore their Painted Flowers set, and also lemonade and limeade, so I couldn't NOT play!  Here's my card:

Altenew Sept challenge Lime Lemonade

I stamped one of the flowers 3 times, and inked one in lemon, one in lime, and one in lemon-lime!  I made the leaves grey, to pull out some of the greys I can see in the inspiration photo.   I paired it with a sentiment from Avery Elle's Oh Happy Day set, and some sequins, and did a very thin lemon and lime frame around my stamped panel.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  16. Really lovely card. I really like the little detail on the back - yellow-green cardstock behind the flower panel. Such a little detail but I think it really makes a difference.
