When life gives you lemons......

Do you remember this release from Sheena Douglass back in the Spring?

They were really popular when they came out, and looking at this card I couldn't help but think of that phrase - 'When Life gives you lemons......make lemonade!'

I really enjoyed making this card using sparkle pens as it was something quite different for me, in terms of  image, and that was half of the fun of it.

I love the background as it looks like pencil sketches rather than a stamp and it is so easy to achieve by simply using a Smokey Grey Versafine pad instead of the usual black.

Anyway, I hope the only lemons in your life right now are the edible ones!

Thanks for stopping by.
