All stamp images, patterned paper, pre-fab papaya note card, solid lime paper, by A Muse Art Stamps; Palette Hybrid Ink in Noir; Versamark; Detail White Embossing Powder; 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle Punches; Sakura Quickie Glue Pen; Prisma Glitter; Gingham Ribbon by May Arts; Prismacolor Markers
When is a spiral daisy not a spiral daisy? When you punch it out with a circle punch that is slightly smaller in diameter. In this case, a 1" punch. Then, layer it onto a 1 1/4" circle punched out of darker green paper (in this case, palm--a lovely cross between lime and olive). Aaaaaaaah, yes. Citrus SLICE. And, if you cut that in half, you'll have a citrus WEDGE. At this point, I was giddy (!). And, it was something I'd figured out a year, ago, but, getting on in years as I am, I'd completely forgotten about it. *snort*! Until now. The ellipse along the polka dotted piece was done with the 1 3/8" circle punch, so you would see a border of yellow surrounding the lime slice, which is elevated with foam mounting tape.
Note the salted rim! (thanks to everybody that cleared up for me whether it was sugar or salt, when it comes to margaritas! LOL!)
I think this makes for a great any-time friendship card . . . I think it would happy up anybody that received it--at least I hope so, as that is the intended effect!
For those of you who may not be aware, "margarita" in Spanish, translates to "daisy" in English. Cool, huh?! Do you get it??? I used a daisy to make a slice of lime for my margarita??? (arms wrapped around self, chortling!)

lol...LOVE your description on the story...you're too funny and the story is hilarious. Personally, if the margie is lime you use salt, but if it's strawberry/mango/peach you use sugar on the rim. =) (no, i'm not a lush, but do enjoy a cold one every now and then...hence my SCS nick!) Oh yeah and the card is too cute!:mrgreen:
