Summer Splash Blog Hop


Welcome to the Denami July Summer Splash Blog Hop!
Did you come from the talented Greta's Blog?
If you want to follow along and have many chances at winning one of 2 Denami Gift Certificates, then begin at the Denami blog and work your way through:)


I made this card for a coworker who is getting ready to retire. He adores iced tea and drinks it all year long, so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into his card somehow.
A parchment colored piece of vellum, some copic markers and ink smeared around and voila, a glass of iced tea:)
I used the medium citrus slice and some leaves from the Rose Accents set to make lemons and mint. The sentiment is from two different sets, Heartfelt Greetings and Thoughtful Greetings.

Be sure to comment for a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate before heading on to the AMAZING PAULINA'S blog:) 

Thanks for stopping by,
Namaste
