BBQ time

Who doesn't love a nice summer BBQ?  This card, a 6x5 creation, was inspired by Summer's #1 activity.  I used a red gingham print from Paper Studio's Back to the Basics pack as a background, because I thought it looked like a table cloth.  I cut the lemonade and hamburger each from Simply Charmed at 3 inches.  It was a tough decision for me whether I wanted to include their faces or not.  I went back and forth for awhile.  I finally decided to go ahead and include them, because I was keeping the rest of the card pretty simple.  As always when I use Simply Charmed, I put Stickles on their cheeks.

The tag is cut from Sweethearts.  I had cut it for an earlier card, but it was too big, so I threw it in my "Cricut cuts that I didn't end up using" bin.  (If you look back at my rose card, you'll see I have it in the smaller size that I actually needed for that card.)  I stamped the word BBQ from Pink by Design's Party Time stamp set.

I plan to enter this card in Cooking with Cricut's First Day of Summer challenge.
