When Life Hands You Lemons..... a card

No, your eyes are not deceiving you.  Two posts again today!  I'm on a roll this week!

I started with a sketch from Mojo Monday

Then I incorporated some requirements for a couple of other challenges.  The first one is Fantabulous Cricut where the challenge is to use a cricut cut of a piece of fruit.  And the other one is from Paper Playtime where the challenge is to use pattern paper.

Here's my card:

Card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 yellow cardstock.  White mat is 4 x 5 1/4 and the green pattern mat is 3 3/4 x 5.  The black strip is 1 1/2 x 3 3/4.  The decorative mats were cut from Elegant Edges using button 2 with the oblong, shift features.  The yellow mat is 3" and the white one is 2 3/4".  The lemon and lemon slice are cut from the Savory lite cartridge at 1 1/2", the flower is from Accent Essentials, two cuts 1 1/4" layered.  The brad and ribbon are from my stash.  I added some stardust glitz to the lemon for sparkle. The pattern papers are from DCWV the Lemon Flower Stack.

Inside mat is 4 x 5 1/4 and the lemonade pitcher is from the Savory Lite cartridge cut at 1 1/2".  Sentiment stamp on front and inside are from Purple Onion Designs.

I hope you enjoyed today's projects!
