Paper Players #594

 Hooray I finally stamped a card!

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the Paper Players Challenge #594


I recently purchased some new paper at JoAnn's (well new to me) with lemons on them so I thought this would be the perfect time to use them. - I remembered that I had an old StampinUp
stamp set that had a lemon image in it so I located the set and got busy creating the card below.

 Card Base: Old Olive (SU)
Lemon Designer Paper - American Crafts
Yellow Dot Paper - Core'dinations
Lemon Stamp - SU (retired) set, Sun RipenedII
Sentiment - Inkadinkado
Enamel Dots - Paper Studio
Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Oval Nestabilitie Dies
Basic Black Embossing Powder - SU
Prisma Colored Pencils
Foam Mounting Tape

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with pencils and blended with Gamsol then fussy cut it out.

Be sure to check out the Design Teams inspiration and the other entries as well.  - Have a great day.
