House of Cards July Challenge

It's July 1st. It must be time to introduce July's challenge at House of Cards

JULY 2016
Fruit/Drink Image and/or Colors

Here's my card

OK. I admit it. I didn't know what I was going to do. Then, fortunately for me, I was visiting my friend Amanda and told her that I needed to create a card with a fruit/drink image. She said that she had a stamp set I could use - CTMH Little Treasures (with the mason jar). I had the idea to stamp on vellum. I unfortunately didn't have any Staz-On ink, so I used Versafine. It didn't dry - so, I got creative and added clear embossing powder and heat set it. At least, I didn't smudge the ink - right?  I coloured with a yellow copic on the reverse side to mimic lemonade. Amanda also had a cute little lime green coloured straw that was perfect to match the colours of the photo inspiration. I found a piece of patterned paper that worked with the colours of this challenge. Finished the card with a yellow banner, stamped with the sentiment from Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler stamp set.

Thanks for visiting
