Day 8:  Let's Celebrate - 4th of July "Sun Tea":  

Well, I wanted to do a Patriotic red, white and blue card for the 4th of July...and I think I accomplished that even with the Sunset color.  The sunset color reminds me of Peach Tea, so this would be my theme for the Coffee Lovers BlogHop.  

I again started out with the wax paper technique and sponged the challenge colors on white cardstock; but I wanted the embossing to show up more so I ran it through the Cuddlebug one more time...loved the effect.  Stamped and printed my images, colored where necessary, fussy-cut and placed on the background with 3D Thin and Regular Foam Tape. Yummy colors...remind me of rainbow sherbert flavors.
