The inspiration site had lots of pretty pictures, but ths one caught my eye. https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/47850814767980512/
With Heavy cream CS I embossed stripes into the front of the card, rolled white Kraft ink over them with a brayer. I wanted to make sure they stood out from the cream so I also heat embossed the white with white EP. Then I stamped the lemons, masking so I could get three lemons like the photo. I water colored them and added a little darker shading with Copics, then fussy cut them. Stamped my sentiment on strips and added it directly to the card while popping up the lemons.

Wow, Pat!!! It was your coloring of your lemons that pulled me in, but when I looked and read what detail you created with your stripes that I was really blown away! What you created is absolutely STUNNING! I love the clean quality of stripes and having these heat embossed is lovely, then you added color with your brayer. WOW!!!
This is one extremely special birthday card!!! I have seen your cards previously and have been impressed by them--this one is extremely detailed and wonderful!!!

Looks just like that pretty lemon cake to me! I bet in real life those stripes are so pretty with all the shiny goodness you added, Pat. Your lemons are beautiful and almost make me pucker up. You know how your mouth waters from the acid....mine is doing that right now! Lol
