The featured stamp set this week is Brewed for You.  It has coordinating dies called Brewed Dies.  Summer definitely arrived in Michigan last week with temps in the 80s - 90s.  Today's card sports a variety of colorful drinks to keep us hydrated.

I designed my drinks for the bright colors, but not being an aficionado of colorful drinks, I'm not sure what they really are.  Will you help me identify them?  Leave a note in the comments if you know what drinks are these colors.

The background from my beverages is one of the pretty designs from Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This is a happy, colorful collection of DSP with a range of bright bold graphical prints to this softer design.  Click on the link in the product list below to see all the designs in the Bright & Beautiful Collection.

The dotted background was made with one of the embossing folders from the Basics On-Line Collection of embossing folders.

The drinks were all colored with Stampin' Blends, and I used the Color Lifter Blend to lighten some spots to look like bubbles.  A coating of clear Wink of Stella on the drinks and a few Iridescent Rhinestones scattered on the card front add some more "bubbles."

A Lemon Lime Twist leaf was added as a garnish for each glass.  I used Lemon Lime Twist cardstock for my little leaf because -- well, what could be a more appropriate name for a garnish on a summery drink?

A coating of clear Wink of Stella and a few Iridescent Rhinestones add some more "bubbles" for our card.

I think this will make a cute thank you card for a "fancy drink" lover, don't you?
