Meet Lily Lemon

I've been collecting a few random 'lemon' quotes on Pinterest lately... I didn't mean to, but it was hard to resist, especially since I had this new image just waiting to be inked up and coloured!

We've all heard the classic quote, (which happens to come with this stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie, by the way) "When live gives you lemons, make lemonade" but how about:

When life gives you lemons, throw them at someone.

When life gives you lemons, squeeze them in people's eyes.

If life gives you melons, you may be dyslexic.

Time will tell which will end up on the inside of this card... there's really something to fit every mood ;)
I've kept this card pretty simple, following the current sketch by CPS, which is also sponsored by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I'm using brand new papers from Pink Paislee's Daily Junque collection, which had a gorgeous yellow paper I had been waiting for! This card is embellished simply with silk ribbon and some straight pins from Maya Road.

I am entering this in Kraftin' Kimmie's "Make it Frilly" challenge. (If you saw this last night when I posted... yes, I had to re-take photos this afternoon... last nights 'flashy' ones were so washed out it bugged me!) Here's another angle at my frilly silk ribbon- isn't it delicious? Makes me want to go eat some lemon cheesecake or something ;) This also gives a zoomed look at Lily's eyes, which I tweaked a bit to add eyelids with glittery eye shadow.
Anywho, hope you enjoyed meeting Lily! If you've got any more 'if life gives you lemons" quotes, I'd love to hear about them in the comments here!

p.s. There's just a couple days left for you to join our April Challenge! If you've been thinking spring, chances are your project will fit right in- please join us!
