Making lemonade

I was inspired by the sketch at this week's Share the Joy Challenge to try something a little different. I needed to make a picnic card for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS, and the best image I could find was this pitcher, so I created a pitcher of lemonade and placed it on a picnic table (figuraturevely speaking).
The image is a digi from Tiffany Doodles. I paper-pieced the umbrella with a snippet of plaid, colored the lemonade and added Glossy Accents, and fussy-cut the image. I used another plaid snippet to be a tablecloth, and a snippet of craft to be the table.  The sentiment is from Impression-Obsession.

This card is for these challenges
Share the Joy #41 -- sketch
Pixie's Snippet Playground #235 -- use snippets
Word Art Wednesday #236 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- used two patterned papers.


  1. What a fun card Sandy - so clever and the paper piecing is a great touch to pull the whole card together perfectly!
