Lemonade on a Hot Summer Day, a card for my Anything Goes Swap Partner for June

With summer here, we're in for some hot sunny days.   Here's Birgitta by CC Designs relaxing and sipping on some ice cold lemonade.  I made this card for Cyndi, who is my "Anything Goes Swap" partner for June.  I just found out it's her birthday today.   Happy Birthday Cyndi!!! Hope you have a GOOD one.  If you'd like to join in this fun swap, click here for the deets on Shirl's blog.

Using my window die by Memory Box, I created a little sunny scene outside.  I thought this DP by The Girl's Paperie was perfect because it looks like wallpaper.  I also used Flower Soft for the carpet, Copic, table and chair stamps by Hero Arts, tree by Studio 112, and cloud stickers.  I cut a tiny piece of clear plastic for the cup, and the lemonade and straw were made with tiny pieces of scrap  CS.  Lastly, I used embroidery thread and tied a little bow in Birgitta's pigtails.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 222 "Here Comes Summer"
Paper Play Challenge - Week 25 "Use a Die"
Crafts & Me Challenges - Challenge 89 - "Anything Goes"
Stampin' for The Weekend - Challenge 12 "Show Us Your Style"

Thanks for stopping by.   Hope you HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.
