"When Life Hands You Lemons"...

This quick little card was made using a digital stamp set from  The Cutting Cafe  .
 I have several sets that I have collected over the past few years and love that they are stored in my computer, ready anytime I need them.


This set is "For the Love of Lemons" and has some really cute sentiments and lemon images. I used a circle punch for the large circle sentiment and added some twine and a little lemon brad from my stash. The card base  is PTI Enchanted Evening and the patterned paper was in my scraps.
This is going to be a grown up card so I added the little martini glass (from another stamp set)  embossed in white, crossed out the lemonade and added the lemon drops sentiment also from the same set and embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and punched with a scallop square.
I thought some little Peachy Faces would be adorable so I added a couple from the Everyday Character Faces Assortment set. A white gel pen and glossy accents finished it off.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day and make sure to do something creative!



This card is entered in the Whimisical Designs "Emboss it" Challenge
