If You Like Pina Coladas...

or margaritas, today's card is for you! I have always loved that pina colada song and it goes without saying that margaritas are a lot of fun. The minute I saw the patterned paper in today's card, I knew exactly what I was going to make with it. Then, when the new Chillax set debuted at Taylored Expressions, I decided to CASE a catchy little sentiment from it for my card idea. So without further ado...

and the inside of the card...

This card was one of my entries for the Anni-Verve-Sary Sketch Challenge (AVS203). It was a great sketch for a card of this type which had a rather small focal point image and a short sentiment for the front of the card. I loved how my materials came together too. When I went to the scrapbook store, I knew I had the DP at home waiting but didn't know what I would put it together with for a card. Turns out, the citron cardstock was in the Archiver's bargain bin as was the beige linen print that I used behind the lime DP. The ribbon was from the dollar bin at Target. Talk about a jackpot! I never get that lucky with clearance and bargain bin scramp supplies. By the time I pick through the sale bins, it is usually down to mint green cardstock and flocked puce ribbon. Go figure.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed this card. The colors make it one of my recent favorites. I can't wait to send it to someone special. I have several extra which I plan to list in my Etsy shop too so if you would like to own it for yourself, drop by Etsy for a visit. If you aren't familiar with Etsy, drop me a line here and I would be glad to assist you. Have a great rest of the day!
