Pink Lemonade Challenge

When I saw this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room
I just had to play along.
here is the beautiful inspiration photo...
and here is my card...

I just love summer break, gives me more time to visit blogs and gain inspiration.
When I went out on my front porch to photograph this card, I realized the colors matched my front door wreath and I couldn't resist popping the card in the center.
Patterned Paper:  Girls' Paperie
Stamps: sentiment from Papertrey Ink "Mega Mixed Messages"
& the image stamp is an old "Close to my Heart" stamp that I borrowed from a friend
 (I don't recall the name of the set). 
It is an oldie, but a goodie.
I colored with Copic Markers and added Icicle Stickles (Ranger) to give the ice cubes sparkle.
I inked edges with Color Box Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye inks.
border punch: Stampin Up!
button, rustic twine and Lemon Tart ribbon: Papertrey Ink
thanks for stopping by!
Now come on over and we'll sit on the porch and have a glass of pink lemonade.
