Pink Lemonade for two

As you probably know this weeks challenge was to use pink and green. I admit I used more than just pink and green. Here is what I came up with:

I got the image from a House Mouse image swap a while back. I was very happy with my coloring. I used my Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. Then I outlined the image with my grey zig marker and made a shadow along the bottom. Next I used my chalks to color the background green making sure the edges were a little darker. I then cut the image out, added dimensional glaze to the pink lemonade and set it aside to dry. I cut a piece of the green pattern paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and glued it to the center of a dark green A2 size card base. I then stamped the sentiment "have a very mice day" in the lower right corner and put diamond glaze over that. Once the dimensional glaze was dry I glued my image to the front. How does it look?
Supplies: stamps by House Mouse (sweet treat for two), cardstock by Bazzill, pattern paper by Quick Quotes Paper, chalk, Prismacolor pencils, Zig marker, Diamond Glaze dimensional glaze.
I love how the dimensional glaze made the lemonade look. Did you make a pink and green card? If so post a link to it in my comments and you will be added to the monthly blog candy give-away.
Yesterday was my DH's birthday so maybe this weekend we will do some celebrating. Do you have any big plans? Hope you have a great weekend.
Happy Crafting,
