Seize the Birthday with a Sketch!


Happy Thursday! It's time for a new Seize the Birthday challenge, and for something a little different, we have a sketch as an option for you! 


Lots of possibilities with this sketch, I think. My card is essentially built around a new-to-me sentiment I wanted to use:


Strangely, I just don't seem to have a lot of drink-related patterned paper in my stash, so I made my own. :D I used Versamark ink with a martini glass stencil, so I could emboss them in clear before adding green and blue watercolour powders. I used more or less matching inks for my two big martini glasses. Is there such a thing as a really small corner-rounding punch? I'd definitely like one so I wouldn't have to round my corners by hand, as I did on the sentiment banner. 


The lovely Carol continues to be our surprise party guest, and she and the StB design team all have their own interpretations of this versatile sketch! Of course, if the sketch isn't calling to you, we love to see all birthday cards in our link-up. Come and join us!

The background is great, as is the image and the sentiment. Love the colours too, they are a pair of my favs to use together.

Your background is awesome! I love (and own) this sentiment as well. There are small corner rounders (at least there used to be). I'll check to see if mine has a manufacturer label on it when I return home.
