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!

#TGIFC301 Mad for Plaid
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.
