Sparkling Lemons

I was excited to use some of my new Simon Says Stamp goodies I purchased with my SSS gift card from Barb to create a glittery card for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge:

 
I cut a white panel and used SSS Waves stencil to blend both SSS Lemon Chiffon, and HA Lemon Yellow, moving the stencil slightly to create the various lines.  I then did the same with Liquitex modeling paste, and a layer of Liquitex mat medium and glitter.  I added mat medium over the top to keep the glitter adhered.  I blended DI Squeezed Lemonade on a piece of white cardstock.  The stamps are from SSS Lemonade.  I heat embossed the sentiment with PSX silver embossing powder.  The sentiment was adhered to a piece of vellum which was foam adhered to the main panel.  The lemon slices were stamped with HA Lemon Yellow, cut with a circle die, brushed with WOS, and adhered with foam tape.

This card is going to play over with the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group Challenge #12: So Sparkly!

I'm also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: A Piece of Paradise.  Those glittery yellow waves make me think of warmer days with a glass of sweet lemonade in hand!
