Today’s card is for the House Mouse and Friend’s Challenge of Liquid Refreshments for Hot Summer Days. I used the image, Splish, Splash...A Citrus Bath, colored with my new alcohol markers. I cut it out with a Spellbinders’ Circle Nestie and layered it on a cute pink background created with a 4” circle and a Martha Stewart corner punch. My friend, April, shared this with me and has a great tutorial here.
The lacy white rectangle is die cut using Marianne Design’s Craftables Die, Lacey Rectangle. I ran a strip of yellow paper lace down the center. This is all layered on some lovely cardstock from Basic Grey’s Olivia collection called McKinley. It is a great combination of some of my favorite colors – pink, green and teal. The sentiment is Ice Day from Inky Antics and was perfect for this card.
I also add 4 little square jewels that looked like mini icecubes.
With temperatures well over 100 degrees in many places, hope you find this cute little critter refreshing. Try to stay cool!!
