For today's card, I used the Feeling Fruity stamps and dies.


These stamps are too cute, right?!  To really showcase the stamps, I kept my card ultra-CAS.  I added some extra detail by using the Faux Diamonds technique on the lemons.  To do this, I die cut and stamped the images.  Then I pressed them into my Versamark Ink pad and sprinkled them with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat set them.  It adds the perfect amount of glitter to make these lemons really shine!  I finished off my design with a sprinkling of Marshmallow Sequins and rhinestones.
  
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check the Whimsy blog tomorrow for more sneak peeks!
