Inspired By... Orange You Lemonade

 Hello, sorry I've been missing most of this week! We find ourselves on the go more often now that things are getting a bit back to normal. 

Thank goodness for a new challenge at Inspired By to keep me going with some stamping. This challenge is called Orange You Lemonade, a good punny line. My subtitle might read Make Mine Sweet and Juicy, lol! 
I pulled out the Summer Citrus stamp set (WPlus9) and did some masking and creative inking. 

I masked a rectangle across the card front and filled in with random stamping in black adding the colored layer over the images. I purposely left some misalignment of the images for more interest. The label and a few die cuts were placed for the sentiments. I drew in details with a white gel pen.

I will be honest, I had real trouble choosing a layout. I would like it better if there was ONE focal point but I decided to just go with this. I didn't want to cover up the stamping!

What will you make to show how our photo inspired you? 
Thanks so much for you visit today, my friends. Orange you glad you came?

Your card is the sweetest! I love the citrus colors and the fun stamps. I've been missing a lot, too, but not because we're out and about. We're homebound until our renovations are done.
