Drunken Stampers Bonus Challenge - Toast to the New Year

This week brings you a Bonus Drunken Stampers challenge. "Toast to the New Year," we are after all the Drunken Stampers...so this challenge is to make a project featuring drinks to celebrate the new year. You can check out all the details for the challenge here on the DRUNKEN STAMPERS BLOG

I want to take this challenge to say cheers to all the members of the Drunken Stampers DT team this term (Barb, Deanne, Elizabeth, Jackie, Katie, KelliJo, Peggy, Spike & Suzanne) it's been great to work along side you all and get to know you better.

I also want to send a cheers to all of you who played along with us for the challenges!! Wouldn't be nearly as much fun without you!!

So here's my card for this challenge. I have always seen these drink cards made with vellum and wanted to give it a go for this last challenge, all in all I am pretty happy with how it came out. I punched 2/3 of a vellum circle for the margarita glass and 1/2 a large oval for the base. For the margarita, I punched 1/2 of the same circle I used for the glass. Not sure if you can see it in the picture or not but I made a sugar rim on the glass with crystal effects and chunky glitter (look at me using glitter three challenges in a row!!!).Because it's winter (at least it it here in Southern Ontario) I gave the glass a little frayed ribbon scarf.

What's in it:
Cardstock - Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight, Primrose Petals, Marina Mist
Wisteria Wonder & Whisper White (SU)
Vellum for margarita glass
Stamps - Tart & Tangy (SU) & Happy Everything (Lawn Fawn)
Ink - Gumball Green (SU)
Ribbon - Gumball Green Stitched Satin (SU)
Punches - 1 1/4" circle, 2 1/2" circle, large oval (SU)
Glossy Accents (Inkssentials)
Chunky Glitter
Glue dots & dimensionals

Thanks for lookin!!
