If Life Gives You Lemons...

My sketch is from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog, this is a fun sketch!! There was a bit of a twist to it, Natasha wanted us to add some DIY stamped paper at the bottom. I chose to use my Chillax set from Taylored Expressions, it has definitely been a year of lemons for hubs and I with finding out more sad news late last week. Ugh, next year will be better, I'm confident of that!! So going with that theme, I used the little lemons in the set and embossed them with clear embossing powder (I've been doing that a lot lately haven't I?!), I don't think you can see them too well in the photo though. The glass was stamped once and I cut out another, raised it with dimentionals and added glassy accents. Quick fun easy card!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
