Allsorts 409 - Food

Happy April Fool's Day 😀
 Hard to believe it's April already! I just hope we'll see some sunshine soon, this past week has been nothing but gloomy weather...

Saturday already again and that means it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts. It's Wendy's turn to host and this week it is all about Food.

I love all things sour and I love lemons, not just for lemonade. I love to eat them with just a bit of sugar or just plain.
So I decided to use this cute Penny Black mouse stamp to create my card. Stamped onto winsor and newton watercolor marker paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I currently love these pens so much, only bought the 36 pack, and there really are plenty of colors included in that set, but I really want to add some more to my collection. 

I kept the card clean and simple. The sentiment was computer generated and I used the Whimsy Stamps Slider die (now retired) to cut it out. The pretty designer paper is by Stampin Up (also retired) and I finished it off by sewing and a little button and jute twine.

Here is what the inside looks like:
I used another cute mouse stamp from one of Penny Black's clear sets, also colored with the Zig Watercolor Pens on Winsor and Newton Marker paper and I used a circle die to cut it out. Matted it onto matching designer paper and completed the sentiment. The lemon die cut is by Whimsy Stamps, most likely also retired. 
This week we are being sponsored by Digistamp Boutique and Stamp Addicts, so we have two great prizes to give away. It's easy to play along, simply follow our theme and link your card up at Allsorts. Our simple rules can be found on the challenge blog.  Hope to see you there :)

This card is listed in my Etsy shop, if you're interested.

I am also entering my card here:
As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Colouring Medium- my second entry, still using my favorites Zig Clean color brush pens, love how easy and quick they are to use
Fairy Tale - Cards with Animals (week 1)
 That would be it for today. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. I'm going to see the Beauty and the Beast again today, once wasn't enough, and I don't want to wait until the DVD is released.
I love musicals and I love Disney princess movies (this one being my favorite), and what an amazing cast they found for this movie!

Have a great day! I'll be back again tomorrow for the new Penny Black and More challenge.
