Makin' lemonade

This is my swap card for this month's FB swap. The theme was summer sun...had to have a sun or the color yellow. For some reason lemonade popped into my head & I just had to go with it. I knew I wanted to do the double pocket card...it is one of my favorite folds ( direction can be found here: http://splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/diagonal_double_pocket_card/ )
Now my dilemma was how to decorate...I found the paper and then just drew a blank. I had no stamps I liked...didn't want to do Cricut cuts...so I went surfing! I first looked for digi-stamps. While I ended up purchasing several, none were for this project, so on to plan B...clipart! I found images that I liked and then formatted on my computer. Then I had to figure out what to put in the pocket...that didn't take long...Kool-aid. I think they turned cute...if I do say so myself.
