Sweetly Sour for The Card Concept!

The Card Concept ... such a wonderful challenge and inspiration photo:
I was once again inspired by a friend ... this one from the other-side-o-the-pond, and a former team-mate I miss from my Muse days!  Jenni Murray, of Jenni's Jems created a darling card using [what I call a shadow and light technique] an even more darling stamp set ... check it out:

 
With this in mind, I came up with a bit of shadow and light using those wonderful Memory Box Sour Citrus Wedges dies, with a bit of honeycomb embossing to add the sweetness!  OH just in case you didn't notice ... for the pink?  a tiny enamel dot!
 
For The Card Concept #58, a Clean and Graphic look?:
 
Inside:
"Even when I'm a sour puss!"
 
Have a really sweet weekend - looking forward to our FaceChat tomorrow, Jenni!!!

Great idea, Michele! I haven't really seen this type of design, or it's been so long that I've forgotten. Will have to remember this. Love that you used it with dies vs. stamping. Happy WCMD to you! Xo, kelly

I'd love to see this in person, Michele. It's so uniquely beautiful and I love the partial embossing. I don't know who you'd send it to because I can't imagine you ever being a sour puss. ;)

Two really fun cards, Michele! I love your technique with the VW...so clever, and your CAS design is sheer perfection! Your 2nd card is also fabulous...I love the graphic shapes with the sweet 'citrus' color palette, and how your embossed panel enhances all that beautiful white space! You ROCK, my friend!
