Hey there House guests!  

We're ending the month of May with a sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  I'm not going to lie....sketch challenges really challenge me.  I think it has something to do with having to conform....LOL.  I'm a wild child!!!!   SEE....

 My card uses RI Stamps #9611-H "Lemon/Lime, #9604-F "When Life" and 9612-F "Citrus Life" all from the "Bottoms Up Set".  I hand wrote the "color them" addition. 

As you can see, I did a lot of masking and coloring (with Copic Markers).  I also used RI Flip Stitch dies, to cut the window for the whole lemon as well as the banner for the sentiment.  I love to color and saw this on Pinterest and just had to give it a try with those Repeat Impressions stamps.

There's an additional fun spot on the card, as I added a "wobble" to the full sized lemon.  

Here's the sketch and I hope you have some fun with it.  I did!   

For even more incredible sketch challenge inspiration take a look at what these awesome ladies have created.
