March 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

Hi! Today's the monthly Papertrey Blog Hop! Below is the inspiration picture. I have to say that yellow has never been my favorite color, but it's growing on me :-)

Blog inspiration

I drew my inspiration from the wallpaper and the bowl of  lemons on the table!. I hand-stamped the background with Betsy's  watercolor stamps from a Make it market kit. I also used   The Bowl of sunshine stamp set. I added a touch of  Wink of Stella on the lemons and bowl, and finished off embossing the sentiment with some green embossing powder.





Thanks for hopping by! Hugs, Char

MaryH said...

A super take on that bright, fresh inspiration picture. The yellows & blues are a lovely color scheme. Loved how you made your wallpaper - and could almost smell the lemon scent in your wonderful bowl. The WoS was a great touch on the lemons too. Especially like the green embossing too. Very much a spring feel to the entire card! Hope all is well and you're ready for a pleasant wkend. TFS & Hugs

Greta said...

Oh what a wonderful card, Char! Yellow is way down on my list of colors, too, but in Spring it somehow moves up--LOL!
