Stampin' Sisterhood #SS20 August Challenge - Summer Fun

Hello Stampin' Sisters!  Well - it's the first Sunday of the month and that means it's time for another Sisterhood Challenge.   This month Jacquie has another sweet summer photo to inspire us -
Doesn't this picture make you want a Lime Rickey,  a cool Lemonade or a fresh glass of cold Orange Juice??!!

Here's the card I was inspired to make:
I used an Amuse striped card (that I've had FOREVER in my drawer - and SO happy to finally be using one!!).  I white embossed lime slices on green paper using a stamp from the Garnish Set #16561 - the sentiment blocks are from Box Word Set #622.  I wrapped Peapod twine around the card 3 times and tied it in a small bow.  Then I layered the limes with foam tape onto the card and added green rhinestones to the center.  I colored the outside edge of the slices with a YG17 Copic to give definition to the rind of the lime..

We'd love to have you join us in this months challenge -  you'll find all the details on the Stampin' Sisterhood blog.  You could win some Rubbernecker stamps!

Oh -  and check out the Rubbernecker Store!   It's been done completely over and you can now order all your stamping supplies through them now along with your RN stamps!
