Sweet Summertime Lemonade Treat

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE #593 - Everything Old is New Again - Reverse Masking, today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 384 - Cool Treats, and my layout is from today's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 455 . I was so inspired today after many weeks of lost mojo. When I think of this heat we are going through and what was enjoyed just yesterday a glass of sweet lemonade I just had to dirty up these sets. I used 2 sets for this card. The images are from Lawn Fawn's Make Lemonade. The sentiment is from Frantic Stamper's Sweet Fruits set. I masked the inside and sponged some mustard seed distressed ink around the edge then I used that sheet and trimmed out the inside to sponge some so saffron ink around the images. I cut the sun out of more mustard cs. I dusted off my stamping pastels and did some water coloring. I popped up the bottom right panel on dimensionals. On the inside I stamped off the full lemon slice then on the inside. Over that I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn "make Lemonade" On the envelope I stamped the half lemon image and colored with copics. Hope you like it.

Neva, this card is so refreshing and fun! Sorry about your intense heat in the south. I thought 92 was sweltering last w/e while visiting in Ohio but think you had it even hotter! Thanks so much for joining us at Mojo Monday!
