On my first card, I stamped the lemons and the branch from Pucker Up with Distress Ink in Wild Honey and Peeled Paint on the White Storm Cardstock. I layered it on the Deep Olive and Aged Sunflower Premium Papers. I painted the image with a water color brush and the Creative Inspiration Paints in Chocolate, Green Olive, Sunshine, Buttercup, Evergreen. I wrapped the luscious Spring Leaf Gingham ribbon and added a pretty Hat Pin.

I made my second card for Saturdays Sweet Stop Sketch (to find more about the Sweet Stop Sketch scroll down 2 posts!) I used the  White Storm Cardstock, Black Linen Cardstock, Basic Grey Papers, and Yoyo Yellow Cardstock to layer the card. I ran the Basic Grey Paper through my Big Shot and used the Swiss Dots folder to add the cute dots. I added some Dew Drops and the Black Stitched Ribbon to finish it off.
