It's the perfect time for a sun-shiney card. It's about this time of year that I long for Spring...all of the trees and grass are so brown and lifeless. I need lots of sunshine and hope to see green grass soon!
Today's card is the perfect pick-me-upper type of card. It uses Karen Lockhart's Lemon Bay stamp and a Papertrey sentiment from the Handwritten Notes set. Instead of flooding the card with tons of yellow, I chose to use some Crate Paper patterned paper and border strips that had subtle yellow tones throughout the design. I also dug some lemon colored buttons out of my stash to embellish the wavy strip of yellow.
For the main image, I colored it in with Copic markers, leaving white space on each lemon to make some highlights. Be sure to zoom in to see the wonderful glitter. I found some yellow glitter that just adds a special sparkle to this card. I think the sentiment is great for this card too.
My inspiration from this card came from my good friend Val from Cal! Last year or so, she sent me a box of California oranges. Oh my word, that was THE BEST citrus fruit I have ever tasted. I savored each and every one of those beauties. Her kind gesture really brightened my dreary winter days.
