IB76 Lemon Yellow

Happy Thursday, peeps!  The end of the week is approaching, yay!  It's time for another Inspired By challenge, and I just got stalled on this one!  I ended up doing what I normally do when I can't come up with an idea...I just throw some elements together randomly, maybe keeping a cohesive shape or theme, and that's what I did today!  You can see I used the square from the Stitched Shapes dies in different patterns and colors:

So let's look to see what stumped me:

A gorgeous table setting, right?!  Don't those lemons and greenery look amazing!  They DO...but I have NO lemon stamps, nothing even close!!  Hence my random elements!  I used some retired SU DSPs, some gifted DSP, a retired set for a sentiment, and some little embellishments on each square.  It's all mounted on an polka-dotted embossed mat, which is mounted on a 4 1/4" square Daffodil Delight card:

I didn't center the design to give it a little edgy the end, I like it!  Hope you'll find something in that challenge photo that will inspire you!!  Hope you share it with us, too!  See you at Inspired By!

A busy day...both Cassidy and Eden were worn out:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

You do YOU so beautifully, LeAnne! plus you've given all of our card players a way to play along when lemons aren't to be found in one's stash!
LOve your paper choices and can easily spot them in the IB photo! Besides... start with a favorite embossing folder and everything just falls into place, I say!

Aww, what a sweet picture of Miss Cassidy & Eden napping! That is sure to make you smile! Loved your card today, LeAnne! I also love how your mind works when it comes to creating! Love all the little elements used on this and even though you had nothing with lemons I love how you pulled in the bright yellow to represent the lemon! It all came together nicely! :)

This has the most charming country feel to it LeAnne, it's wonderful!

What a great way to tackle that photo inspiration without a lemon - it certainly doesn't come across as a collection of random bits!
