Winners and Midway Post at Open-Minded Crafting Fun!.

Good morning everyone! Today is Saturday, which means something is happening at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. Today is our midway mark for Challenge #16 - Summer Food. And that also means that this morning we are posting the winners and DT Favorites for Challenge #15. Be sure to hop over there to see if you are a winner or a DT favorite. And then check back at noon for inspiration from the rest of the Design Team for Challenge #16. Our sponsors for Challenge #16 are:

We have some AMAZING sponsors! Please be sure to give them some love. They really make our challenge great! Along with all of you that play along :)

Here is what I created:

I used the image Lemons from Oak Pond Creations. I thought it was a perfect way to make a summery card.I created the sentiment, When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade. The image is colored with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I decoupaged the top two lemons. The rectangle stamp die cut is My Favorite Things and the oval is Spellbinders. I added the little flowers and the sequins. I inked the inside edge of the rectangle die cut with the yellow ink by leaving the die cut attached to the paper.  Well.. that's it from me! I can't wait to the rest of the amazing creations you guys enter. There are already some amazing projects!!!
