Time for the Bubbly!


Don't you just love when a card turns out exactly like you pictured it in your mind?!  The chairs and table are from Hero Arts (HA) CL480 Wish You Were Here set.  The wine bottle, glasses and bubbly sentiment are from a My Favorite Things clear set I've had forever.  I embossed the bottle and glasses on white cs and colored them with copics.  To make the wine label I stamped an old Stampin' Up french writing stamp on a piece of cocoa cs and paper pieced it on the bottle.  The birthday sentiment is from HA CG275 Birthday (4) - I'm getting much more use out of this cling set than I imagined.  The birthday present was die cut using Cricut Joys of the Season cart.  A fun card that one of our nieces who is turning 21 this year (and can finally drink legally!) will appreciate.
Other Materials Used:  Papertrey ink cs and pp, Stampin' Up cs and ink, Nesties, source of grid pp unknown

I've decided to enter this in the Birthday challenge at ABC DT !

Thanks for stopping by and for all your sweet comments!

Oh I know what you mean, Robin. It puts a smile on my face when a design just works. Maybe it has something to do with a special occassion that helps. Your card is perfect for your neice, and so adorable. Such a GREAT little scene!

Unfortunately, this never happens to me! Ha! I very rarely "see" a card, finished in my mind. I sure wish I could do that! I think it's the non-artist in me. :) I REALLY love this awesome card, Robin! Love that you pictured it, then it turned out exactly like you wanted it to! Fabulous for your niece's 21st birthday!
