When life gives you lemons

Another challenge on CCEE Stampers blog and hostess Frances finds the most interesting challenges.
According to the Days of the Year web site today is Lemonade Day …. Let's celebrate by creating cards that features lemonade in some way. If you don't have anything Lemon or lemon related feature some other kind of beverage.

It is also challenge week that I do with a couple of friends each month we get together and go shopping at our favourite craft store. Our challenge is to create a card using products that we all own, this month was the Tattered Lace half circle die. Using this die we each created a lever card, this design card has been around for years however this is the first one that I have made.
I only had one stamp set, this one from Penny Black that I wanted to use for this challenge, I was so happy that it could fit into the circle die.

 I found this fruit salad designer paper that I thought would work well in the center of this card. I used spellbinders speech bubbles and fussy cut the green layer.

Here is another view from a different angle.

Check out all the other team member's delicious creations of the CCEE Stampers blog
