When life gives you lemons ...

... make lemonade

I was asked to make another card with this saying. I found the lemonad picture and the clipart saying, put them together and mounted them on to a scrap piece of Papermania lemon sorbet paper. The background paper is from a pad by Raspberry Road papers. I cut into the design in three places to slot the checked paper into. With the addition of the flowers and the gems, the card was done.

Inspired by the yellow colours of the inspiration picture given for Alota 88:
