Cheers, my friend

Here's a birthday card for one of my closest friends:
This image shows the color saturation better in the sunlight...

... and this image shows how it looks more IRL-- much softer than the image above, which was taken in full sunlight.

I was out of town for her birthday, and, shame on me: I failed to leave a card for her!  So I'll bring this to her birthday BBQ tonight.

  • Sentiment stamp by Stampabilities inked with Dina Wakley Media MM Palette: Ocean
  • Drink by STAMPlorations, inked with Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Recollections in Snow
  • Panel colored with various DIs 
  • Stickles used to accent the drink
  • Background triangles inked through something cut with my Cricut Explore Air 2 when I was first experimenting with it... wait, who am I kidding-- I am still experimenting!
  • Triangles accented with white Signo
  • Cherry and dots are Viva Perlen Pen in Red
I'll share this with:


  1. What a cute card. I love the white embossing with the Distress Inks. They show up beautifully here. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at Just Us Girls!
