When Life Gives You Lemons... SC286 TCPTues115

This card is for 2 challenges:

1. Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge - SC286; and

2. TCPTues115, found here: http://dancinginpajamas.blogspot.com/2010/06/tcp-tuesday-115.html. The picture of glass tiles under my card pic was the inspiration.

I cut striped paper into strips and then staggered them and taped together on the back to mimic tiles. Added glossy accents, and Voila...tiles! Got the idea of how to stagger the stripes from SmylinStef http://ingeniousinkling.typepad.com/ingenious_inkling/2010/06/moxie-fab-paper-bargello.html. Thanks, Stef.

The image is a freebie from Tiffany Doodles found at CDAC here: http://priscillastyles.ning.com/forum/topics/freebie-digi-kick-off. Thanks, Tiffany! I also added Glossy Accents to it to make it look like a glass pitcher. The image has a cute little umbrella, but I wanted to use a cocktail umbrella for dimension. tfl
