Happy Wednesday!  Ooo . . . it almost snuck up on me this time!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is a Designer's Choice.  Patti is that designer and her challenge is: Food and/or Drink.  It's pretty fun, don't you think?  And it can be used for so many different occasions.  As soon as I saw the challenge, I knew I wanted to create something with lemonade.
The RI mason jar stamp was the perfect starting point; I stamped it on white card and then again on a piece of vellum that I sponged with some pink ink to create some raspberry lemonade.  I cut the vellum right on the stamped lines, so I could place it over the image stamped on the white card.  I also stamped, colored, and fussy cut 4 lemon slices.  I adhered two "in" the mason jar and then layered the lemonade layer over top.  I also stamped the lemon slices in a light gray on the background to add a bit of interest.
This is a fun challenge and I hope you will get a chance to play along with us.

From the bg to the focal image, this card is over the top creative, Heather. It's also subliminally suggestive...I'm now thirsty! :)
