The challenge at Just Us Girls this week is hosted by Elizabeth and she has chosen this amazing moodboard. I absolutely love the lemons!
I was in the Amalfi Coast in Italy last April, and the lemons were abundant! Everywhere you looked you saw lemon trees and lemon everything as far as souvenirs were concerned. I of course came home with some (and I wanted to include them in my photo and forgot!).
Anyway, my card uses the Lemons and Blueberries set from Pink Fresh. I started by adhering the coordinating washi tape onto some white cardstock. The die then cut out all the pieces perfectly. I only used the wreath and one of the lemon bouquets on my card. I actually cut the wreath in half to make it bigger which allowed me to adhere the white sentiment strip across it. I adhered the lemon bouquet on it as well. The yellow gingham pattern paper was adhered to the base then I adhered the wreath and sentiment strip. I added yellow crystals as well.

Fun and colorful wreath pretty card
I love everything about this card, especially with the details you gave on how to use PF washi and cardstock. I had no idea. This lemon wreath is gorgeous and your idea to cut it in half to make it larger was so clever. I love the lemons you added with the sentiment too!
Lisa, a darling generous friend gifted me with this washi and WHY didn't I think to use it?? How beautiful it is with your lovely yellow gingham!
Washi tape was a fabulous idea! Splitting it was your second-best idea...LOL Awesome card!
That washi wreath is gorgeous, Lisa, and I love it on the pale gingham background.
I am loving that awesome lemon and blueberry wreath and so cool that it is washi tape! Beautiful design with that subtle yellow gingham background.
WO! Talk about a gorgeous wreath! I had no idea lemons and blueberries, combined, could be this stunning. Real life wreath like this would make my front door very happy!
Oh so pretty and colourful Lisa. Love the font on the sentiment and how you placed it.
