More Lemonade

Another post for today.  Here's the second card I made from the not so good stamping I did on Sunday.  This time I turned it over and got a good stamping.  Only trouble was that after it was all colored, I realized I could see the stems through the cardstock.  Even laying it on some yellow didn't hide them.  So I punched the image so those pesky stems wouldn't show.


This was to be for the Queen for the Day at SCS last week.  DJ has a wonderful gallery with lots of flowers and butterflies.  I found lots of inspiration there.  When I saw this card, I thought of this stamp and yellow flowers.  I was going to use a different layout but DJ's layout was perfect for this salvaged image.  And I ended up loving the results.  Hope you do too.

All supplies are Stampin'  Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Garden Poems (Penny Black)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), SU Markers (Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive)
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Other:  2 1/2" Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, White Gel Pen, Circle and Scallop Circle Nesties (Spellbinders)

We had a rainy morning when I had to run errands.  Now that I'm home, the sun is out.  All this warm weather and rain is making the leaves start to open.  I think we'll be seeing a lot of pollen in the coming days.  It will be nice to see the trees green again.

Thanks for stopping to visit.  I hope you're having a wonderful day whatever your weather.

Enjoy!
