Hi everyone!!

I'm very glad to be able to play this month on the Paper Trey Blog Hop.  Usually it takes place during weekdays when I am working.  Today challenge is all about yellow and shades of aqua.  I looove the inspirational pic, it made me want to eat lemon candies.... or at least have a cup of lemon tea ;)

Here is the inspirational pic:

For the card I tried also this week Make it Monday Technique - Graduated Backgrounds.  I love this technique and found it excellent to combine today's color pallet. 

To achieve the color on the leaves, I used last week Make It Monday Technique and stamped the leaves in green and then using the Bitty Background Blocks I color kissed the leaves in blue.   The kissed image is very subtle but is there, and I love how it turned out.  I also used the same technique to make the flower.   

Here is a full picture of the card:

Thanks for your visit and for leaving some love!!

Nice! Esos retos son chévere q obligan a combinar colores q de otra forma quizás no combinaríamos, verdad? Te quedó hermosa. Me encantaron las hojas estampadas. Gracias por compartir.
