When life gives you limes...

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is to make a humorous card.  I've been meaning to make a card like this for a while now... and what better excuse than a challenge!! :)


No Cricut here... the image is a stock photo I sized with Photoshop to the dimensions I liked for this card.  The sentiment is printed on photo paper so it has a glossy sheen.


The paper is DCWV Spring Shower Stack, the buttons are from Michaels.


I added Glossy Accents to the lime and Studio G Glitter Glue (like stickles) to the rim of the margarita glass to represent the salt! :)


The glitter glue was still wet in the picture, I couldn't wait to enter the challenge... okay, I doddled on the card and had only 51 minutes to make this card before the challenge ended! :)  I love the result though! 

I am also entering this card into the challenge over at

Wow, I love this card and the stickles looks just like salt on the rim. You can't go wrong with that sentiment!
