PTI March Blog Hop

Hello friends,
Today I'm participating in...
 This month's challenge is this inspiration pic:

You had me at Lemonheads ;) Yum- a little sweet with a kick of tart!
Here's my card:
 I used Lemon Tart (how appropriate right!?) and Hawaiian Shores as my main colors. I ran the Lemon Tart cardstock (which is the BEST yellow color out there) through my embossing folder to create the dots, then I took a strip of Hawaiian Shores cardstock & sprayed it with Mistic Pearls Mist to give it some shimmer then I pleated it. I finished it off by adding a white satin ribbon with bow topped with a custom stick pin & baker's twine.
Here's a closer peek at that:
You probably cant see the shimmer on the pleating, but it adds a bit o' sophisticate to it, me thinks :)

Yup, pretty CAS for me- not a difficult card.
Thanks so much for hopping by today!
