Adrift



Hey all, I'm back with a second post for today. I wanted to play with the colors in today's Color Throwdown challenge, especially after seeing Danielle's cute card with the monkey floating in the tube. It reminded me of this cute Penny Black Adrift image I got from Michelle at Stamper's Dream.

The layout is today's SCS Sketch 228. Two images were stamped, the second was cut out and popped up on foam tape. The curved rectangle nestie is also up on foam tape. The lemons on the saffron panel are from my Margaritas clear set. They're heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Waterfall Stickles were added to the water and the ice cube in *Fat Cat's* (uh huh, that's his name) drink. Three more lemons were stamped and heat embossed on the inside of the card, down in the lower left-hand corner.

Here's a close-up:
