This might be my favorite So Refreshing Card of the week.  The colors just make me happy.

Are you wondering how I made the colorful background behind the picnic blanket?  It looks like I took a bunch of different pieces of designer series paper and tore them into strips and then layered them together, doesn't it?  Well, I certainly could have done that, but I didn't need to because IT WAS DONE FOR ME! 

The Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper (DSP) has a design that already looks like this.  All I needed to do was to tear along the top and bottom of the pale pinkish colors to remove this striped area from the full 12" x 12" sheet, and I had my scrappy piece finished!

For my picnic, I die cut the blanket from Blueberry Bushel and then stamped-up a pitcher and a couple of glasses of lemonade.

It doesn't show well in the photo, but a few of the So Refreshing Dies also include embossing, like the strawberries, leaves and blanket used on this card.  

The sentiment is also from the So Refreshing stamp set.  I stamped it the Berry Burst and then fussy cut it as I wanted to maximize the amount of the colorful DSP that showed.  It is too pretty to cover up!

I added another pitcher and glass of lemonade on the inside of the card and matted the Basic White cardstock to Blueberry Bushed to give the inside a little pizzaz.

In Wednesday's Post I gave you a hint on how to best align the 3 stamps that make up the flower, but no hints are needed to align the lemonade inside the pitcher and glass.  Alignment is super easy and forgiving!
