Pinterest Inspired Card..All About Black, White and Lemons!!

Hi Everyone!!  I was on Pinterest (of course) and one of my favourite things to scope out are patterns and colors.  I got an order from Simon Says Stamp the other day and in it was the stamp set Berry Good from Avery Elle...I was eyeing up this set for awhile and finally caved.  So, I thought what better colors to pair together than black, white and yellow!!!  This is the inspiration I found:
I don't have black and white striped or black and white polka dot paper so I made my own.  I used the  Extra Large Dots Stencil from Simon Says Stamp with VersaMark ink on black cardstock and white embossing powder for the polka dot paper.  I used the Wide Stripes Background stamp (also, Simon Says Stamp) and Versafine Onyx Black ink on white cardstock for the striped paper.

I had to fill in some areas of the black stripes with my Memento marker...
I stamped my Lemon images with VersaMark ink and white embossing powder on white watercolour cardstock.
I chose some yellow and green colors of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the lemons.
I used a stitched rectangle die (from MFT Blueprints 15) to cut down the polka dot paper and a stitched circle die (also MFT) to cut out a portion of the striped paper.
I stamped the sentiment "pucker up"...messing up the first time.  I put my card together and thought that the polka dot print was too "in your face" so I muted it with a piece of vellum.  I adhered everything together and added some yellow and clear sequins.
I also added some Crystal Stickles to the tops of the lemons...needed some sparkle!  Here is the finished card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Stay crafty, my friends  xxx
