When Life Gives You Lemons

It's time to check it out at Craft Your Passion. That's right! We want to see checks, plaid or gingham on your projects! How's that for a fun theme?!

This is such a fun theme, so we really hope you will come on over to Craft Your Passion and play along with us!

We have a fantastic sponsor this week. The wonderful Jules, from Daisy's Doodles is our sponsor! Jules has awesome images in her store! You really need to check it out, if You haven't been there!

Come play with us at Craft Your Passion, for your chance to win a digi prize from Daisy's Doodles!

My card layout uses the sketch at The Pink Elephant. The image is by Daisy's Doodles and is colored with Promarkers. The gingham paper, flowers, and flower trim are from my stash. I used adhesive pearls to add to the flower centers. The image has had a glossy, glassy effect added, with a glaze pen. The sentiment is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches and pop dotted for dimension.
