Freshen your design with a Citrus Challenge

It's officially the new challenge month for Stampendous and we are going to use Citrus Colors. How about joining along with us? We'd love for you to freshen those layouts, sketches, 3-D projects or any project with a Citrus twist and then link up with us on the challenge blog.

You can go to the Stampendous Blog and get all the details today!

My card today is a flub one... I mean fun one. Okay so I really did flub a bit on it. In real life it had some acrylic brushed on top of the green pattern paper and then I embossed  the sentiment in Pirate's Gold. It looked awesome! When I photographed it to share with you today, the sentiment would NOT show up. No matter which way I positioned the card or my light source it just wasn't going to show up. So I stamped again and embossed with the Stampendous Jade PEARLustre embossing powder and trimmed it to nestle in and over my Pirate's Gold sentiment. I'll just call it my buried treasure! LOL

Now for the fun! It's Citrus Colors! How refreshing isn't it. My card base went to the Martha Stewart Score Board first and got a lattice treatment. I used some pattern paper from Spring Fling MatStack by DCWV. The fabulous glittery border was made by measuring away from the edges with my c-thru ruler and a pencil. Then I carefully lined up my 1/8" Perfectly Tack Tape along the line and cutting it with a sharp utility knife. Take off the red protective cover and sprinkle glitter over it.  The sentiment and butterflies are from Garden Beauty Clear Stamp Set. Both are stamped with VersaMark Watermark Ink pad and embossed with Jade PEARLustre Embossing Powder. The butterflies received a little more attention with my Quickie Glue Pen to add a dash of Fun Flock from the Rainbow Glitter and Flock Kit.
