Color Blog Hop -- with Border Thinlit or Framelit

Hello everyone.  Well, this week I managed to get something done for posting, unlike last week when I bummed out!  You should have arrived here by way of Liz's blogsite.  We have been challenged to work from this gorgeous, yummy, inspiration piece......  When I looked at this picture, the first thing I had to do was run to the refrigerator and get something nice and cold to drink.  Doesn't it make you want a tall glass of lemonade?  I was really enthused about working with these colors.

Then our fearless leader, Robbie, worked up the comparable Stampin'Up!" colors for us.  Nice colors.  The extra twist for this week is to add a border thinlit or framelit.

Then I started putting some cardstock, ink, etc. together for a card.  Ugh!  I have a wastebasket full of throw aways, despite how much I liked the inspiration piece.  I tried cupcakes, I tried different layers of cardstock, I tried sponging, nothing worked.  On about the 5th try I decided my challenge this week was to make the next attempt work no matter what and no matter how much I had to add or take from it.  So here is what I came up with.  I sure hope next week goes better.

If you started this hop with me, then come along with me back to the beginning, or to your next stop whichever it is, and let's go see if anyone else had difficulty like I had.  Robbie's blogsite is next.

Crafty Hugs,

Sandy! I am surprised to hear you say you had trouble! This card is adorable! I especially like the panel where use the grunge stamp set, it added so much.
