If life gives you lemons...make lemon zest

The Challenge at Penny Black Saturday (which I am too late to enter, oops!) is "Delicious."  I don't know about you, but lemonade doesn't immediately come to mind when I think of the word "delicious." Unfortunately, I don't have any Penny Black stamps with cake or cookies so I had to go in a slightly different direction.  Luckily, it gave me an opportunity to ink up these adorable stamps. 

The green paper is from a Sam's Club jumbo paper pack.  I don't know the actual brand of the paper, but I've been hoarding it because I love how cheerful the polka dots are.  I added the lemons, which I cut out of two different shades of yellow paper.  The overall effect is a bit bright, but I thought that was appropriate for an encouragement card. 

I also decided to decorate the inside.  Usually, I just add a strip or two of coordinating paper, but since the challenge at Paper Sundaes and Truly Scrumptious this week is to decorate the inside of your card, I decided to do a little extra.  Here's a peek...

And here's the inside.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Truly Scrumptious---"Decorate the inside of your card"
Paper Sundaes---"Finishing Touches"
Card Positioning Systems---Sketch #235

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
