This image is from Purple Onion Designs, and it always makes me think "Wish I were there." The image is colored with pencils, and I assure you there is blue sky (if somewhat pale) that simply didn't photograph. The lemonade has Glossy Accents on it.
I used snippets of a bunch of prints that look like beach blanket colors to me for accents, including the die-cut button (from MFT). I cut three layers of card stock to give the button enough bulk to look realistic without it being too bulky for mailing. The bow is made from two strands of baker's twine.
