Craft-a-lot Unity Challenge 2

Hello friends!  Here is a card I made for the Craft-a-lot Unity Challenge #2.  If you have any Unity stamps you should enter.  You might win!  I am the 3rd participant, so odds of winning are good.  You have just a short amount of time.  You can check out all the details here.  The challenge is to use a Unity stamp and embossing.  I used Ippity Itty Bitty Live Half Full stamp.  I think this is the perfect stamp for refreshing summer drinks.
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the citrus border.  I lightly sanded the embossing and added a little Memento Tangelo ink.  I colored the drink with Copics.  I used a Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Marker on the ice cubes.  It is a white pigment marker.  Very subtle, but shows up a little.  I cut a small rectangle and embossed the corner with the citrus embossing folder.   The sentiment was stamped with the Memento Tangelo ink.  I finished the card with striped grosgrain pumpkin pie ribbon by Stampin Up.  Thanks for visiting!

I am also entering this into the June Unity Challenge.

Hugs and smiles,
