Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

It's time for a new sketch challenge over at Stamping 411, which is the perfect finish to a perfect week 🙂 As you know, I'm beginning a new job on Monday, but what is new and exciting this week is that it's not the job I originally accepted! The other night the perfect job fell right into my lap, with the perfect hours and about a 10 minute commute, I couldn't be more excited! Me returning to work full time will no longer be the huge adjustment I had been worrying about with the long days and longer commute!! Plus, I'll still have time to stamp which is making me a very happy girl!!

As always the sketch is a fabulous one! I love to look back at some of the sketches we've done from time to time, especially when I'm stumped for card ideas…I just borrow on of the sketches and make a whole new look out of it! Here's the sketch this week:


And here's my card:


I wanted to show you a close up of the cocktail, so you can see the Crystal Effects on the glass, the chunky glitter frosting the edge of the glass, and the bling all around 🙂

  1. What a fun card!!! I could go for a tall frosty beverage right about now (took Amanda dress shopping for Homecoming).
    I love the fun colors, and the chunky glitter on the edge of the glass is genius!
