Serendipity = Sweet!



Today the sun is shining and I'm sitting here wearing shorts! and the birds are chirping... summer is coming!! woo hoo.  Nothing says summer like a big pitcher of Lemonade : )  I am excited to be entering my card in this month's challenge at Serendipity Stamps challenge - Die Cut!!



I started out by stenciling some yellow ink on my card base then I cut a Tag from Serendipity Stamps.  I stamped my pitcher on to the tag and die cut out the word "Sweet".  I cut another "Sweet" from bright yellow cs and inked the bottom just a bit to give better dimension. Next I inlaid my die cut and applied just a VERY light amount of soft yellow pencil to the lemons and the lemonade in the pitcher.  Finally came some Wink of Stella and a few ice blue sequins a seam binding bow and a piece of Baker's Twine!! Walla!! easy peasy!


I will also enter this in the Happy Little Stampers challenge : ) I sure hope it is CAS enough! That bow might have put me over the edge but I hope they'll allow it.

I appreciate you stopping by : )  I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Patti

Supplies:
Stencil - Funky florals by MFT
Image, Die cut and Tag by Serendipity Stamps
Sequins from PPP
Ribbons from my stash : )

Hi Patti! so clever to leave the lemonade pitcher uncolored and add the color with the die cut word and embellishments!
