I Need a Squeeze-FOSTV

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy...that's what this card happens to be. It was really easy and I love it as a CAS card. Of course, you can see where the Lemon Squeezy came about.

My card was made for the Friends of Speedy TV challenge #3 to use colored pencils only.  Geez, it had been a while since I got mine out, and that would be since I started using Copics. So, I reached for my PrismaColor watercolor pencils and some watercolor paper and discovered once again how much fun it is to use them.

My stamp is from the Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company set called Pucker Up! I'm using a Cheery Lynn Designs die called Dainty Dutch Deco Frame and I really love it. It has a center piece which I didn't use on this card. I love the intricate details on this die.
 My recipe is listed below. Hope you'll join our challenge this week. It can be found at Home of Speedy TV.

Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company-Pucker Up
Paper: MFP, A Heinrich Company-Atlantic Ocean Spray cardstock, white cs, Canson watercolor paper 140 #

THis is ranking among one of my fave cards of yours, Benzi! I love lemon images, and you did a FAB job coloring it.

Then, that frame! Oh, boy, I fell in love at first sight. I think this looks like a piece of home decor, it's much more than a card.
