May I Get You A Lemonade?

Good morning friends! Welcome to the Clear Dollar Stamps July Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Linda's blog. And if you just happened on this post and would like to start the hop from the beginning just head back to the CDS blog HERE to start at the beginning.

I just had such a fun time making my card for today! I decided that what is more summer-ish then bright colors and a yummy drink? And, just who wouldn't want a super cutie turtle to bring them their drink? So... I decided to use the Turtle Greetings digital image set. Funny, though...I didn't use a greeting. Seems I'm getting away from that recently. Anyway, I used DeLovely patterned papers and then tried my best to color my image to match. After I got done coloring the sky I decided I didn't like it just plain so I grabbed out my cloud dies, cut a couple, sponged them a complimentary color, adhered them down, and then cut them with the straight edge. It really gave the card the *umph* I was looking for! My final two accents were to add Glossy Accents to the glass and a cute little bow to the bottom of the card with some baker's twine. I used the sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches for this card as well. Oh, goodness! I just realized that I left out an element of this card sketch...oops!

I hope you will hop on over to Cassie's Blog to see the fabulous project that she has for you! Have an amazing Sunday!
