Sweet Sunday Lemonade and Another PI Teaser

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC115.

Given that it's also Pure Innocence teaser day for the new MFT release, I thought I'd share another new PI set, Pucker Up. Is she not just so sweet at her little lemonade stand?!? She'll be available along with all the other new MFT products on Tuesday, May 3rd at 10pm EST.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I couldn't resist paper piecing the table with the gingham patterned paper from my Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad. I added some crackle accents on the pitcher of lemonade for a fun 'twist'!  :-)

I added plenty of stitching along with a pomegranate bow, which I topped off with a paper button (cut out with my button quartet die-namics) and a knot of honeydew twine.

I decorated the inside too, because I really wanted to use this sentiment and didn't really have room for it on the front. The fancy border was cut out with my dizzy border die-namic.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch challenge and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.

This is the SWEETEST card ever!! I adore it! You amaze me with all the little extras you do - the crackle on the lemonade jug, the two tone shadow along the edges (!), the tablecloth that looks so real, the inside dizzy border die is perfect and you cut out tiny fruit on the inside too! I bow to your greatness! :)
