Margaritas and Salt!

Hi All!

I'm so excited to announce I've been selected to join the All That Stickles Design Team!!!  I wanted to spill the beans, not the margarita, but I had to wait!  The challenge is ANYTHING GOES and runs from Saturday, August 3rd until Friday, August 16-11:00 pm (CST-US).

We're beginning to enjoy summer again in Wisconsin, as the temperatures are finally back in the high 70's to 80's.  Summer reminds me of ice cold margaritas near a pool...definitely no jogging allowed!

This card uses Frosted Lace Stickles for the salt on the Margarita glasses!  Thanks Vicki B. for suggesting it a few weeks ago. Frosted Lace is perfect! The Clara stamp, Margarita Glass, and the Falling Ice  saying are from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps. The cardstock is Tim Holtz Kraft Distress Core'dinations embossed using Retro Cirque Texure Fade by Tim Holtz.  Clara and the Margarita Glass were stamped on X-press paper with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copics.
I entering her in Repeat Impressions-Challenge DCC7331~Water Element--I don't know if Clara in a swimsuit and ice in her glass counts, but maybe?

Prizes for August!
Lovebug Creations - $15 GC
The Paper Nest Dolls-$25 GC
Bugaboo - 7 digis
SK Digis - 2 SINGLE digis
of their choice

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
