Papercraft Star Anniversary Day 2

Welcome back to day 2 of The Papercraft Star Anniversary week!  Today's challenge is hosted by our very talented Sylvia!  Her challenge is to create a card using a "cold summer drink".  There's an awesome picture to use as inspiration if you choose, over on the Papercraft Star blog as well as Sylvia's blog. No worries coffee drinkers, Sylvia has a inspirational card for you too.   For my card I was totally inspired by this photo.  It's been super hot over here in Texas with temperatures over 100 degrees.  There's nothing like a tall glass of ice cold lemonade during these HOT I'M MELTING summer days!  For my base I used Choice White cardstock from Taylored Expressions and matted some patterned paper from My Minds Eye.  Following the Mojo Monday sketch for this week I matted more of the patterned paper to Yo Yo Yellow cardstock from SU along with some Sky Blue, also from SU (retired).  The circle was cut using Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is from a stamp set by Taylored Expressions called Chillax.  And just for fun I used my brand new pin-wheel die from Taylored Expressions and added some yellow buttons to the bottom.  Well I hope you find time to join in on the fun this week.  There are prizes to be won from our sponsor The House Across The Bay at each challenge.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for Jinny's challenge.  I hope you are having a wonderful "cool" day!
