Timeless Lemon

I am going to start off by saying that this card looks so much better in person. I don't know what was up but no matter how many times I took a photo of this card or how long I spent editing it I could not get it to look right. I have to say I spent almost the entire morning on it and have finally gave up.

Okay for the details. I made this for six different challenges, listed below. It is my first Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. So the base is elegant eggplant, the DP is from Tea Party form Stampin' Up, and the oval is barley banana. The wonderful stamp is from a new set from Flourishes called Life Love & Lemons, I just got this set and I love it. I colored it with copics and then cut it out. In hope you all have a wonderful weekend, the weather here is gorgeous so I am out of here to enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. brenda,
    I have the same problem when I am using either yellow or light greens, the photos or scans just don't come up right!

    but I have to say I still love the card!

  4. Well I think it looks beautiful, but I know exactly what you mean! A few weeks ago, with the baby shower stuff, none of the colors were true on screen. They were SO much prettier IRL. Anyway, gorgeous card!

  5. It's a very pretty card, Brenda. Great job and I love the colors you chose.

  6. Sooooooooooo pretty, Brenda! You've colored it so beautifully, too.
