I'm Back!!... and with a Challenge Card!!

It's been a LONG, LONG time since I updated my blog! I have made a few cards since my last post but more importantly, we graduated a high school senior, had an awesome party and went on a vacation!!! Throw in high school softball, a few summer tournaments along with one week of VBS and we have been very busy.
But, all good things must come to an end and all that ball will be completely over in just a few short weeks. I'm starting to gear myself up to get back to stamping....hoping to be able to finish house remodeling with some card making on the side.
 
I saw this current challenge from The Play Date Café and decided that I would play along. Something about the color combination inspired me! (I think it was the Green)
 
 
I have had BIG cravings for cherry limeades lately....oh the Sonic ones are so yummy!
I have found that I can make my own at our local Dillon's fountain if it is not Happy Hour at Sonic.
 

 
So the color combo and my recent addiction of cherry limeade were my inspiration for this card.
I used Friendship Jars from PTI along with the Newsprint background. The fun little cherry is also from PTI.

 
The sentiment I made myself from the computer, printed on vellum.
The colors, I had to make a few substitutions.
For Orange Zest, I used Pumpkin Pie. Chartreuse, I actually used a Chartreuse ink along with Lucky Limeade (imagine that, LOL). The Jade substitute was my newly acquired Bermuda Bay ink (L.O.V.E that color1) and Hawaiian Shores paper. Added some stitching around the edges and called it done! 
 
 
Thanks for stopping and checking out my card and blog!
