Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #10


I made this card for MFP's Speedy the Cat's Friend's challenge #10 to use a die cut. I used the Spellbinders Labels four and the SU! top note dies for this card. I stamped the Impression Obsession image with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear detail ep, then colored it with Tombow markers and an aqua brush. I sponged the main image with bashful blue before removing the die, and added stickles to the umbrellas and stamen of the flower. The photo doesn't show it at all, but I added some MS yellow tinsel glitter to the lemon slices for some dazzle. The cherry was coated with CTMH liquid glass for interest. The dp is from the Memory Box Enchanted collection and the top note die cut is a piece of cool caribbean. The bottom mat is a piece of dark purple cardstock and the ribbon is from my stash.
I had lunch with two friends yesterday at Crackerbarrel while we were on a shopping trip in Lancaster. I ordered raspberry lemonade which was served in a frosted mug and all I can say is YUM-OH-MY!! I guess I still had that refreshing drink in mind when I made this card!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a very happy and festive July 4th holiday weekend!
