Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 51


I made this card for this weeks sketch challenge over at The Sweetest Thing.  It doubles as the card we are giving to Mick's cousin at her birthday dinner on Sunday night.  I have really struggled with what to make (I don't really know her...Mick's Mum is Maltese, so there seems to be rellies everywhere!), and everyone I have asked has said that she likes horses.  That really doesn't help...I don't own any stamp sets with a horse in it!  Here's hoping that the next best thing to horses is alcohol!!!  I'm not 100% happy with it...don't you hate it when what is in your head just doesn't come out the right way when you finally get to make it?  Hopefully she will like it anyway.


I dug out the trusty Cheers To You stamp set, which hadn't seen ink for a while, and coloured the drinks in with Tempting Turquoise to match the designer paper.  I have used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds on the drinks and umbrella's to finish it off.


Thanks for looking!
