Welcome to the Family - Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers

  I had a new team member join at the end of May so I wanted to create a card to welcome her to the team and to the Stampin' Up! family.  I used the just ended Just Add Ink layout along with the theme challenge over at The Paper Players which is to use food and/or drink on your card.

  A little jar of lemonade seemed like a great idea with the weather being a bit hot and humid the last few days.  I love this layout because it's a great way to show off several different DSP designs.

  I started with 2 panels of Tea Boutique DSP in a subtle pattern in Sweet Sorbet.  I balanced that with a little black square of All Together DSP.  The itty bitty hearts are a nice match to the smaller pattern on the other panels.

  For the focal panel I embossed a piece of Basic White with the Splatters embossing folder for some texture.  I added a vellum stamped jar from the Jar of Flowers set.  I used Pool Party ink for the jar and then colored in the lemonade with my Daffodil Delight dark Blends marker.  I tucked the Sweet Sorbet straw in and then adhered it all to the Basic White panel.

  The lemon slices from the Cup of Tea stamp set are stamped in Daffodil Delight and die cut out and added around the jar and sentiment.  The sentiment is from a retired demo only set and is stamped and cut out with a Stylish Shape circle.

  For the embellishments I added a few Classic Matte Dots in black and white in opposite corners and a Sweet Sorbet baker's twine bow to the jar.  

  I love the summertime feel of this card and wish my new team member a happy Stampin' Up! demo journey!
