11/26 Looks Like Fresca!


First off . . . . Happy Thanksgiving! I am soon to be off enjoying the day . . . and I hope you are, too! This is a card I made for the sketch challenge at Stamping 411. I've had a very busy week with two Christmas Dozen classes on Monday and Tuesday, the usual kid stuff, and then the day before Thanksgiving . . . we somehow managed to work in laundry, grocery shopping, baking, two dentist appointments and a trip to the theatre to see New Moon! Then . . . stamping my challenge card! Why not . . . I was up doing laundry anyway!

The whole while I worked on this card I kept thinking about the old soft drink called Fresca. The colors remind me so much of the Lemon-Lime taste. My mom and I used to share a Fresca whenever we golfed together. Hot sunny day at the course, and a Fresca was very refreshing indeed! Do they even make Fresca anymore? I haven't seen it in ages!
.
Well, enough reminiscing. My card is quite straight forward and for once follows the sketch almost exactly. I love the collage of flowers made with the Petal Pizzazz stamp set. I love the whimsical look to the birthday sentiment as it flows right on cue into the circle of flowers. The Crushed Curry ribbon and the Circle Fire Rhinestone Brad seemed to be just the right touch. Enjoy this light, refreshing card and may your day be blessed with family and friends.
