TCP Tuesday Challenge - TCPTUES64


This week TCP challenge, is an inspirational challenge, where Toni pick a purrfect HOT days of summer inspired picture - I took one look and I knew I was going to have some FUN playing!

As always, I tend to be a little literal in my interpretations - so my first thought was to recreate the yummy looking drinks - and of course what says more FUN than a cool MARGARITA on a HOT summer day... or night! :)

Here is my take on this challenge:


This does look YUMMY! I used my darling Cricut to cut the margarita glass from a cut file created by Heather G from Handmade by Jade who generously shared it on her blog - Heather did a great job on this one! You can't tell very well, but I cut another layer using a transparency to add a glass like shine and I used Martha Stewart coarse glitter to add the yummy "salt". And of course, I had to use this sentiment from TCP It's A Mod, Mod World set because it went so purrfectly with the margarita theme - and I was in luck when I found this DCWV pattern paper in my stash. I pulled the colors directly from there and this card just came together nice and easy! :) I created a wine glass beaded tag out of some bendable wire and beads - it adds dimension and it is a FUN touch.

Have a relaxing weekend, enjoy the hot days of summer!

Great card Carole! I love that coarse glitter you used for the salt. Margaritas sound yummy, especially a good frozen one in all this summer heat.
