Age and glasses of wine!

First Friday of the year!  yeah!!!  I know it probably sounds repetitive 'cause a lot of people might be pointing it out, but it is cool anyway.  This is going to be a nice weekend.  I will be sharing some time with some nephews and nieces from my husband side.  It is going to be awesome!

Today is also Friends with Flair at Unity Stamp Co. so since I had this card I made for the Be Inspired Challenge, I decided to post it and link to both.  Love this stamp I recently got.  I made the card for a coworker/friend's bday which was last Monday.  This card made her smile.  :)



In the inspirational color photo I loved the textures so that is why I went with cork paper for the card.

I punched circles with matching colors and created an interesting background.


Also added baker's twine and 3D adhesives to create dimension.


The girl was colored with watercolor pencils.  Also used some glossy accents for the lips, rose and wine...  Knowing my friend, this would be a glass of a refreshing Albariño... LOL!


I hope you have a great weekend.  Leave a comment for a chance to win goodies from Unity Stamp Co. :)
