Sweet Lemon ?

Ages since I have done any crafting ....... mojo has been on its hols I think.  This card is on a Kraft base and I have incorporated a machine embroidered lemon (made on my Singer machine) as the focal point.

The mats are made from Tilda papers.  I have used Versamark ink along with gold Perfect Pearls to make the green mat with a starry stamp.  Once layered I added the embroidered piece and a strip of spotty pink adhesive ribbon tape as shown.

Two lime buttons were threaded through with pink cotton and these are placed either side of a stamped image saying 'so sweet'. Couldn't resist mixing sweet with sour !!

3 blobs of Glossy Accents were used to accent the lemon to finish.

This will fit the bill for the theme over on City Crafter Challenge Blog this week 216 the theme being 'fruits'.
