#TGIFC301 Mad for Plaid

I'm playing along with the TGIF Challenge again this week, where we have been asked to create cards that are "mad for plaid."  I don't why but I am in a spring/summer mood these days, and the bright citrusy colours in the new (available to demonstrators only right now) DSP packs fit the bill!

We have been on lock down or social isolation for almost a year now, and I can't wait to gather my girls for a cocktail night when it is safe to do so!  

For my card I used two sheets of plaid DSP, one in Mango Melody, and one in Melon Mambo, which totally evoke dreams of summery cocktails.  

I coloured and die cut three frosty drinks, complete with lime wedges and pink umbrellas!  And I added shimmery crystal effects to each of the glasses--they look so realistic in person!  I added some clear sequins to add to the shimmery-ness as well.

I also added some ink to white cardstock in an ombre effect with my new blending brushes.  Doesn't it resemble a summer sunset?!  And I finished it off with a fluffy white twine bow.

I left the inside of my card blank so I can add all the details of our meet-up when the time comes, and added one more drink (because you can't have enough at this point!).  For the inside glass I added the crystal effects to just the ice cubes, which adds a whole other dimension to the glass.

Thank you for stopping by, and I encourage you to hop over to the TGIF challenge board and see all of the amazing projects this month.
