Lemonade Anyone!!! DT Card

Hi, it's Susan here on a bright and sunny Monday morning. Hope everyone had a glorious weekend.

I am very excited to show you this card as it is the first DT card I have made for Daisy Doodles!! The Challenge started this morning and the theme is 'SUMMER', why not have a go yourself, go to their store, the digi images are so good.

I used a great sketch for this card from Everybody Art Challenge.

My colours for this card were chosen with summer in mind reminding me of beautiful sunny days, and ice cream flavours!!

The backing papers are from a CD rom from Artylicious, Peacock Summer Party, beautiful CD with the most delicious papers!! I have distressed all the edges and glittered them to make the sun sparkle off them.

The ribbons were from our local market!!

This is an image from Daisy Doodles, it is called 'ice n a slice', such a good name, conjuring up a cool drink in the summer!!

The topper edges were all distressed and glittered to match the main theme of the card. I used Pro-Markers to colour the image in, and highlighted the bubbles with Glossy Accents.

The tab I made on the computer, edges have been distressed and aged with inks, then glittered.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and Petaloo, the edges of course were glittered to match the rest of the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
