Fresh Squeeze

Earlier today I was thinking about summer (as the snow was falling outside!) and I started thinking of my Tart and Tangy stamp set. Then I started thinking about lemonade, which is so good on a hot day. Mainly, I wanted a glass with the lemon slice over the edge. So i was thinking and thinking, not sure what to do. I thought velumn would make a good glass. So this is what I came up with, isn't it fun! This card says summer to me.

This is how I made it: I started with summer sun, put the Good Morning Sunshine DSP on the top, used So Saffron Ribbon from the SAB Catalog across the front and closed with a brad from my hodgepodge hardware set. Next I took a peice of velumn and ran it through with the Background 1 Texturz Plates, I used the edge to act as the lip of the glass. I then used dimensionals for the glueing. Once the glass was mounted, I filled with shreds of yo-yo yellow CS. I took a peice of the polka dot paper from Pink flamingo and rolled up into a straw. I used crystal effects and glitter to create a sticky lip on the glass. The lemon is the tart and tangy stamp in yo-yo yellow with some dazzling diamonds glitter. Next I stamped the yummy image on more pink flamingo DSP using ballet blue ink and mounted with sticky strip. Finally, I added a few flowers using the Eastern Blooms set and ballet blue for the first and old olive on mellow moss for the second.

Per my usual, I want to put it into a few contests, first, the So Shelli creative challenge- http://www.soshelli.com/contest/- which features SAB sets. Second, I wanted to put it in the Flourishes timeless tuesday challenge- http://flourishesnewsletter.blogspot.com/2009/02/timeless-tuesday_23.html- which features velumn. Wish me luck and enjoy some nice cold lemonade. :)
