Whatever Goes Wednesday


Nothing says summer like a tall glass of ice cold lemonade. This was the inspiration for this card. I have had this SU Sparkling Summer set for a while and have never inked it up. I always thought it was adorable but just sort of forgot about it until yesterday. As I was looking through my stamps I noticed it and thought... ummm I think I will make a summer card. The paper is SU Certain Celery, Barely Banana, Old Olive, Real Red, and Whisper White. The DP is Basic Grey. I used my scalloped square punch to matte the lemonade image which was inked with VersaMark and Iridescent EP. It shines a lot more in real life. The sun's are from the Paper Salon Oodles and Doodle set and the sentiment is from Green Grass stamps. The ribbon slider is from the Lil' Davis chipboard collection. I inked it up with Summer Sun SU ink. The brads are from the Paper Studio and the ribbon is from SU. To finish the card I did some faux stitching and edge distressing.
