When Life Gives You Lemons.....Get Crafty!!

Hello everyone!  I've got a little sweet sunshine, with a lemony twist for you today!

This card starts with a basic A2 size base (5&1/2 by 4&1/4) of yellow cardstock.  I added a 5&1/4" by 4" layer of citrus slice patterned paper. 

I cut a 2&7/8" circle out of orange dot paper and white cardstock.  I brushed ink around the edge of the orange circle and glued it to the upper left of the card front. 

The white circle I sponged on blue ink to create a sky.  Then I tore the edge off of a 1&1/4" strip of green grass paper and glued it to the circle using Scrap Happy Glue.  I trimmed the edges off to match the circle. 

Next, was die cutting the scallop circle out of yellow cardstock and foam tape the sky/grass background to this piece, then glue to the card overlapping the orange circle. 

Stamp the sentiments on white cardstock in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink and trim down to banners.  Stamp the lemonade stand, color, and fussy cut.  Foam tape stand to the right side of sky/grass background, add banners and pearl to finish.

This is a fun sunny card to encourage a friend!
