Well, this is my third try in uploading this card- there is some magic button on my keyboard that I keep hitting that makes the page disappear...;}
I actually thought up the design of this card while half asleep in the wee hours of this morning, and I thought, well, I'll just see what the CC colours are today and use those. So here it is! After much trial and error I actually got a frame made with my nesties that isn't too crooked, which is a first, and embossed the edges of the outer frame. I coloured the image with a combination of reinkers, sponging, and markers, and used some green and clear stickles to make some sparkles on the water. The dessert option this week was to use buttons, so I've obliged here with a wooden button tied with some twine onto a bit of ribbon from my stash that's a good match for Lucky Limeade. I like how the ribbon has a bit of sparkle to echo the stickles on the water. TFL!
