Summertime Treats

Challenge Blog

A new challenge has started over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!  This month, the theme is Summer with Pearls & Swirls and Meljen’s Designs is our sponsor.

I had fun with this card.  Summer, in my mind, means a wide variety of cold treats become readily available and root beer floats are near the top of my favorites list!  However, only A&W root beer will do!  Do you have a favorite summertime treat?

The main image is colored with Copic Markers.  I embossed the white panel behind the main image with a swirly Cuttlebug embossing folder and added a red pearl as the cherry.  I couldn’t resist adding a bit of clear Stickles to the top of the float and a little Crystal Effects to the glass dish!  The digital float image can be found here.
