Citrus Punch

>> Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Hi Everyone,

I've been seeing many cards on the Web made using backgrounds cut on an angle, so that's what I was going for here.  However, it came out looking basically like all of my other cards, just with and angled border.  Oh well!  I'm still patting myself on the back for giving it a try, and I still like all the bright colors and the fun summer theme :)

I labeled my post Citrus punch, because I decided to color the fruit in my Lemonade pitcher something other than yellow, so it's more than lemonade!  I used the Citrus Slice for my background and colored my Citrus Border to match. 

The Five O'clock Somewhere Greeting seemed most appropriate for this time of year....I could go for a glass of this right now!

Thanks for stopping by!

I think it's great that you walked on the wild side! Even if it was in a safe neighborhood :) And I love your card today! The angle is great and I love the dark orange background!!

I love that greeting! I am putting it on my wish list. Love the angled border and the colorful fruit. Kind of reminds me of sangria and would be a super fun way to do real lemonade or margaritas. Fun, fun, fun card Karin! Hugz
