"If you like pina coladas..."

"... and gettin' caught in the rain..." If you could SMELL this card, you'd be singing that song, too! Today's ATS Challenge is to create a Scented Card. Some ideas to use are Card Scents, Embossing Powder mixed with Kool-Aid or Crystal Light, or Scented Gelly Powder. There are some directions from SCS on making a Scratch and Sniff card HERE.

The bear, sentiment, and flower are all from the C.C. Designs August releases. The drink is a $1 Michaels stamp (gotta love those!). I used Pina Colada Card Scents on my drink -- it smells just like the real thing!! YUM! Of course, our little bear is enjoying a non-alcoholic drink! ;)

I colored all the images with Copics. I cut out the flower and drink and popped them up on rolled up glue dots. I sponged around the image panel with River Rock ink, and I added some highlights to the bear with a white gel pen. I scalloped the bottom edge of the Ginger Blossom paper and finished the card with white organdy ribbon and some Ruby Red brads.


Play along with us! Upload your cards to the ATS Gallery (or other public gallery) and use keyword ATSDTC15. If you upload to ATS, use the Wednesday Challenge category so we're sure to see it! Too bad we won't be able to smell it! ;)

All the ATS Challenges can be found HERE -- do any one at any time! Remember, Christine and Amy are looking for the first C.C. Designs Guest Designer -- it could be YOU!! Design Team samples for today's challenge will be posted on the ATS Blog later on, so stop by to see them!
