Picture This

It is time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  This week our challenge is to create a project using this photo for inspiration.

This just says "Summer" to me.  And so I made a card that looks like summer.


I began with a large pitcher of lemonade cut from the SAVORY cartridge.  The glass of lemonade and lemon were cut from the JUST BECAUSE cartridge.  The strawberries were cut from the PRESERVES cartridge.  

I did some inking with yellow on the lemon and lemonade.  The strawberries were inked with red and green.  And the glass and pitcher were inked with light blue.   The pink border was cut with an EK Success border punch.  I topped it with a red and white checked ribbon.  The little sentiment is a stamped I have had for a long time and am not sure where I got it.  And keeping my summer tradition, the paper is from my stash.  

Join us for a fun challenge and show us how the photo inspires your project.  Just link it up at My Sheri Crafts.  I can't wait to see what you create!
