Happy Little Stampers: CAS

Welcome to the July edition of the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge! Our theme for the month is Citrus and Zing. Perfect for summer! Here's my card:

This citrus stamp set, designed by my Seize the Birthday teammate Shirley, was an easy choice for the card. I stamped the citrus outline in a medium green, and then used a lighter green for the segments. There's another stamp for the rind, but a) I like the lighter look, and b) I don't like to push my luck with layering stamps. :D To keep the background from being too plain, I used a shiplap stamp with a third green to add a little extra interest. The sentiment is embossed in sparkly embossing powder. After adhering everything to a light green card base, I added a trio of green sequins to finish the card. I'm adding this to the STAMPlorations never-ending anything goes challenge. 

Lots of zingy inspiration from my HLS teammates, so be sure to head over to the blog to see some beautiful cards! 

Supplies: Neenah white & Hero Arts green layering cardstock, STAMPlorations Layered Citrus & Concord & 9th Shiplap Sentiments stamps, Versafine onyx black, Catherine Pooler new sprout & melon ice & Simon Says Stamp new leaf ink, Wow clear glitter embossing powder, Winnie & Walter Katharine cutaway rectangle die, Neat & Tangled lime satin sequins

Great lemon slices, paired with just a hint of lime! I hear you on being cautious with layering stamps! And again, kudos with the fussy cutting! Love this!
