Pucker Up

HI and welcome to my blog!  I'm here with a card for the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this week I have the pleasure of being sketch hostess.

I never have a card in mind when I come up with the sketch, but when I saw this completed sketch, I immediately thought slider card 😃  I ended up going in a different direction, but I really hope someone else sees a slider card in the sketch and creates one!

I saw this stamp set in my NBUS box and when I saw the inspiration photo over at SugarPea Designs, I knew what I wanted to make.  I stamped and colored the images with Copics then cut them with my Scan n Cut.  I added a strip of Peach Bellini cardstock to a white card base, then white-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of Berrylicious cardstock.  I adhered the embossed strip to the right hand side of the peach strip (forgetting that the sketch doesn't have the strip going right to the edge!)

I arranged the images onto the card popping up the front lemon and lemon squeezer with foam tape.  I finished by adding some crystal glaze to the ice cubes and heart.

Thanks for visiting!  The design team have done wonderful things with this sketch, so I hope you'll check them out and give my sketch a try.

As mentioned above, I was inspired by the colors in SugarPea Design's latest challenge and I'm also entering this into Addicted to Stamps and More's Make Your Mark challenge.

These images are so cute! That little lemon that is being squeezed just cracks me up with its facial expression. I love the colors you've used on this sweet card too, Karren!

So yeah...a slider would have been brilliant. Wish I thought of it! Thieve images are just so sweet even if they are a little puckered up. Thanks for a great sketch this week!
