Cheers to you

Hi how are you today? Are you getting ready for the weekend? Please take a look at this weeks challenge on the Cute Card Thursday blog. The challenge is called "Cheers" and you can create anything "drink related" and submit it to the blog.. and enter to win a prize.
. The challenge for me was more "what kind of paper" should i use - i pretty much have only girly papers. I found this sheet in my Basic Grey Ambrosia paper stack but all the other sheets had some sort of orange in them and that did not work. So i came up with this layout where i just needed one sheet of patterend paper. (the "plain" grey is also from the stack and as you know those have some sort of "smudges" and so in them) I used my new Martha Stewart punches to give the card the little extra. You can see one punch "in action" on the front panel and my second border punch was used to create a interesting "masculine" frame in the inside of the card. Okay enough talked ... to finish the card i added some Paper glaze to the glasses and Stickles to the wings.
Stamp: "Party Edwin"
Coloring: Copics
Ink: Versafine, Adiorndack Ranger
Embellishments: Stampin up Silver Hardware .. love the big brads with the stars on it :-), Stickles, Paper Glaze
PS. i think i forgot to publish the card i was talking about yesterday on my second blog :-) the kids totally distraced me. It is up now.

Claudia- the color is perfect and I love that sentiment! Can I get sentiments online too? I guess I always look at the Edwin/Tilda's but never the sentiments and didn't know they had embellishments and paper till you showed them. Heidi
