Cool summertime . . .

I was honored with the position of guest designer this time around for the My Besties Germany challenge, with the theme "special summer".   I've chosen this lemonade sweet image, 'cause it's just not summer without a tall, sparkling glass of chilled lemonade on a hot day -- and, in this case, it must have been a scorcher, for her to be chilling her buns on the ice cubes -- talk about a long, tall drink, or should that be "dunk" - hahaha !!   I've colored with prismas and gamsol, and added stickles to the lemonade for that sparkly look.  I've tucked a couple doilies behind my image, then surrounded it with die cut foliage from glittery cardstock, and added the flowers - the orange ones have brad centers added to them.   The corners are die cuts, and I've added gems to the centers and thus completes my creation.   Hope you're feeling cooler now, or headed to the frig to get yourself a lemonade!
