Summertime Beverages

Hello there!  It's Memorial Day Weekend and time for parties and festive warm weather beverages.  I combined the "beverages" theme from Shopping Our Stash "Get Your Drink On" Challenge with the color and tropical theme (lei in particular) for Time Out Challenges "Home Sweet Home" photo challenge.

I LOVE Sunny Studio's Tropical Paradise set for fun summer cards.  This is one of the first stamps sets I bought when I started cardmaking.   I started by stamping the beverage images on Bristol card stock and then colored them with my new Zig Clean Watercolor markers.  

I wanted to subtly frame the grouping so I die-cut a stitched rectangle as a backdrop.  I die-cut Celebrate three times and glued them together for a substantial looking sentiment strip.  I glued the rectangular panel and back 2 drinks directly to the A2 card with Gina K Connect Glue. The front two beverages are adhered with foam squares for a bit more dimension. 

I am proud to enter this card in the Time Out and Shopping Our Stash Challenges (links in first paragraph).
