365 Cards! Today Pam wants to see our cards meant to cheer someone up! I almost went literal based on her title "When Life gives you Lemons" but I really didn't have any stamps to go with that AND I'd just gotten this cool set from Taylored Expressions "Hangin' Out- At the Beach" so here ya go! I love this sentiment and it's sooooo true for me based on the last few days I've had at work (Hawaii schools returned to class on Monday...UGH!)! Anyway, I've been wanting to make a shaker card so I repurposed the back of a button container to make this one! The Dew Drops inside are called "water" although I pulled the totally green ones out of this collection. The background in double embossed...that is both dry and heat embossed (find a toot at SCS on how to do this). A little bit of sewing around the edge and viola! It's done! And here's the inside...which kinda finishes the challenge!
