#TGIF165 Darling You're Fabulous

This week's challenge over at #TGIF165 is to have some fun interpreting an inspiration photo. 

This challenge is all about summer and what is more fitting for the season than a lemonade stand? 
Well if you will allow me I'll tell you what is more fitting.  For me it is a taco truck and if I'm really lucky it's one that serves pineapple agua fresca.

For my spin on the challenge I combined the TGIF inspiration photo and the above picture I saw online.  I was drawn to the minty-aqua and gold colors of the cups which sparked an idea I had to try.  For my card I made some colorful pineapples using the pinecone dies from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  I combined my pinecone pineapples with the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and the Stitched Labels Framelits for a spunky, fun, and fresh look perfect for the summer days ahead.

My colors include Whisper White, Basic Black, Pineapple Punch, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana.  I also added some great embellishments that are new in the catalog; I tied a bow of Pool Party and Silver Baker's Twine and dotted a few Metallic Pearls here and there.  The fancy black scalloped boarders are strips of the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape.  Cute don't you think?


  1. Love everything about this card. The creativity and awesome color combo!

  2. That's so funny, how you turned pinecone dies into pineapple! Clever girl :)

  3. ditto from your friend down the street. Too bad you can't patent your clever ideas.
    I am happily gazing at your witty pinecones turned pineapples on your cheerful card. Love your blog Elizabeth
