This is the card I am submitting to the HOUSE MOUSE & FRIENDS
for their current challenge theme: 

Think I'll submit this view as it show the glossy effect I used on the glass and kiddo says it also makes the drink look fizzy. : )

Love this angle shot showing the backside of the card a bit too. Unfortunately it doesn't really show off the glossy effect on the glass though.

  1. Used a 'Summer' rub-on in the bottom corner of patterned paper. 
  2. Wrapped some cotton candy pink & white bakers twine around the patterned paper before affixing it to the card base. 
  3. Tucked a 'haute' pink ticket stub into a paper clip and tucked both to the edge of the patterned paper.
  4. The chipboard 'smile' sentiment pops up off the card with foam tape.
  5. The HOUSE MOUSE stamped image was colored with a combination of copics and other markers till I was satisfied with the results.
  6. The pink flower that finishes the card is sweet and it actualy came to me via a swap on PCP and I decided to use it here with the help of my kiddo who said it looked like a Hawaiin flower and fit the SUMMER theme.
  7. Voila!
Happy with the final result and love the HAPPY colors and patterned papers I used.  : )

Now to ' wish me luck !' in the challenge LOL HERE
