You're the Zest Birthday Card with Vera Lane Studio's Citrus Sisters Digi

You're the Zest Vera Lane Studio Citrus Sisters birthday card, colored with Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils, by Paperesse.

I think when I bought this Vera Lane Studio's Citrus Sisters digi, I was channeling Tina Turner's 'Simply the Best' song and in typing that, I can't help singing it in my mind, ♪♫ 'Simply the zest, better than all the zest...'. ♪♫ Ha! And I bet you're thinking that now, too. The inside sentiment wishes the recipient the zest birthday ever.

I've used this for a birthday, but it could just as easily work for any number of occasions – graduation, congratulations, thank you, etc. Whatever you choose to use them for (and by the way, there are three designs in the set plus sentiments), possible punny citrus sentiments abound (an example of which is on this Orange Valentine's day card).

The bright paper is a mix from my stash – Craft Sensations Do It Because It Makes You Happy paper pad (and yes, that's really the name) and some Max Bringmann Basic. Round foam stickers serve as light-weight, easily-mailed embellishments.
