Inspired By challenge 23 with summer on the porch theme

Anniversary card for nephew inspired by the images of the lemon and lime slices combined to make the fresh summer lemon/lime-ade!

Other summer on the porch elements: blue gingham check, citrus sunshine colors of yellow, green, and orange; white doily pieces to simulate a lace table cloth or white wicker furniture; lemonade mason jar drink; and lemon and lime slices.

Anniversary elements: lemon + lime (husband and wife); stamped anniversary words; #2 stickers; celebrate stamp

Above is the challenge's inspiration photo and the link is:

Design notes:
a. photo below is my proof that the blue gingham cardstock, mason jar image (was the mini journal's front cover), and the lemon and lime slices sticky notes were recycled!!!! When I saw these Friday afternoon I had to buy to use sometime this summer
b. the mason jar of juice was moved a bit to the right so that I could add the additional slices at the bottom left
c. the 3 areas of white doily are parts of 1 heart-shaped doily
d. the little stickers on the bottom right above the #2 are planner stickers that were used to reinforce the importance of the happy couple to take time to celebrate and also design-wise balance the space compared to the left side

Nephew and his wife will be celebrating this weekend, so I've got to get this card mailed in the morning.

I'll still be crafting in the USA heartland! Becca S
