Cheers to the Paper Craft Crew!

When I first saw today's sketch, I thought, "Happy I do Day" because I knew it would fit in the circle AND it's mine and DH's wedding anniversary on Friday. But then, I started thinking of bright colours since I had them out from yesterday's card.

So, here's what I came up with:

I started off with the leftover Pacific Point from yesterday and then consulted my colour coach to add the Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.

I stamped the glass in Pacific Point on Whisper White and then punched it out, leaving enough space at the top for the little umbrella, which was (yes, I'm crazy!) hand cut. Then, I added a slit to the rim of the glass and tucked the umbrella in. I added a Stampin' Dimensional under the umbrella.

I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point and notched one end. Then, the idea of a martini came to me and I wrapped the other end around a toothpick (I cut off the pointy ends) for a nod to the "olives".

I'm sending it to a dear friend who's daughter has been admitted to the hospital AGAIN. If you've been around for awhile, you'll know that Allison is a dear, dear friend and that her daughter is loved as if she were mine. My heart breaks every time she is hurting. *sigh*

Oh apologies for the downer. :(

Here's the sketch on which my card was based:
