Fun In The Sun

The lovely girls at Cuttlebug Mania have got their sunhats on this week and want us to make a card with the theme Fun In The Sun. I was looking through my embossing folders for a snowflake one and came across this one. I'm ashamed to say I've never used it and was so impressed with the quality of embossing in the Cuttlebug - you can see the pips on the strawberries it is so detailed

I'm not sure of the name of the folder but it is by Cuttlebug and I think it came in a set. The image is from an old Stampin Up set called Cheers To You and is stamped on a scrap of Rymans card and cut with Nesties I've coloured it tones of red with Promarkers as when I was sat in the garden listening to the Wimbledon final I had Pimms with strawberry juice to help cool me down. The backing paper is from the DCWV Sweet Stack and I chose the strawberry sheet to match the strawberry in the drink The sentiment is from the same set and stamped onto scraps too. To finish, I've glazed the drink with Glossy Accents which I left to dry overnight.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
Polka Doodles - Summer Fun
Kaboodledoodles - Any Embossing

Now I must get on and clear my desk so that I can start on OH's birthday present
