Sweet Summer Treats

Happy Friday everyone. It's time for another fun challenge over at Pause Dream Enjoy and our design team has created some wonderful projects for you.  The directive for this challenge was to create a project using any sweet summer treat of our choosing.

Of course when one thinks about sweet summer treats the first things that generally come to mind are berries, watermelon, and ice cream.  But what about all the other yummies that the season has to offer like sumptuous, fresh off the vine tomatoes or how about those delightful pitchers of lemonade that scream out to us whether the kids are around or not?  And it was that line of thinking that brought me to creating my card with a pitcher of lemonade as the focal point.

I used Block Party for my lemonade pitcher, cutting the top layer from a piece of plastic that had somewhat of a 'design' to it.  My reasoning being that I felt it would make the pitcher look more realistic.

The small circle that says "Life" was cut from George.

The flowers were all cut from Accent Essentials.  Oh, look at the purple on one the inside of the card.  That's a perfect example of how to use a 'mistake' to your advantage.  I misjudged where to place my paper on the mat and it cut off the tips of the two bottom legs on my flower.  Instead of throwing it out though I decided to strategically adhere to the very bottom edge of the card so that no one would be the wiser.  Well, except for you guys.....lol

Now that you've seen my take on this week's challenge hop on over to take a look at all the other yummy projects our team has created.  Then after you've been amply inspired, create your own sweet summer treat, link up and play along for your chance to win a $5 gift certificate from
