FMS588 Happy Lemon Lolly Birthday

Happy Friday, peeps! It's going to be HOT here in SE PA! We've had a string of absolutely gorgeous weather, so I am not complaining, although we are going to need some RAIN here very soon!  Anyway, I have a very simple card today for the FMS sketch by Jen Mitchell:

I am still getting used to the new colors SU revealed this year, and Lemon Lolly is one that I haven't used much.  I am not much of a yellow fan, so I challenged myself to use it and I paired it with another subtle, Soft Seafoam:

I embossed a half-diagonal panel of Basic White with the Leaf Falling embossing folder, then added the diecut scallop along the edge.  The stamped image is from Timeless Arrangements, stamped in Soft Seafoam and colored with a Blender Pen and ink.  Sentiment is from Inked & Tiled.  I did ad a wee little gem and some really old retired ribbon (I recently "organized" all my ribbons--amazing what I found!) and mounted it all on a Lemon Lolly card base.

Originally I had planned to use these images from Courage & Faith for the front panel but it was too big, so I added it to the inside:

Thanks so much for popping in today---enjoy it and be blessed!

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our "God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:28-29

As a little girl I always asked for yellow dresses - it still pleases me, LeAnne! Especially this soft dreamy yellow! Very pretty with that soft seafoam!
A very pretty card!

Love these soft colors together. Bet Bubble Bath would look good with Lemon Lolly too.

I like this shade of yellow with the soft green. Lovely card, LeAnne. It's been hot here too, 89 and we need rain BAD!!

This is such a pretty card LeAnne! I love the soft colours and that sweet little ribbon accent! We desperately need rain here as well. I think we've made had two days with rain since winter. It's so dry! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Lemon Lolly looks like a keeper! It looks fabulous paired with the soft greens and I love the leafy texture and scalloped edge.

This card is so light and fresh LeAnne and the embossing behind the stamped image is a great textural addition - just lovely!

The colors pair together beautifully! Thanks for playing along with us at FMS this week.
