Then Make Ice Cubes

You've heard the saying, "When life give you lemons, make lemonade."  Go a step further - add ice cubes.  What?  Let me explain.  When I went to make this card, I tried to find an embellishment to go along with it.  I knew I had some old gems that I thought would compliment the ice cubes in the image, thinking I would put three where the button is now.  But when I went to take one off the package, the backing came off, leaving a clear gem the exact size of an ice cube.
How fun was that!!!  So I scrapped the backing off three more gems and glued them on the image.  LOVE how it turned out.

I made this card for the Die Cut Diva's Challenge - Hot August Nights.
I used rectangle dies by MFT to cut out the pieces.  The image is colored with Prisma Pencils.

You still have a little over a week left to play the challenge.  Would love to see your interpretation of Hot August Nights.
