An Inspired Martini !

Sounds good to me! (an appletini that is!) This weeks inspiration challenge over at Split Coast was pretty designer umbrellas - I chose this one: I knew I'd use this great designer paper from Papertrey for it and I also used the Floral Fantasy and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folders. I used the Swiss Dots folder right over the DP.The martini and sentiment are from a new set from Artful Inkables called Olive You. I have started sewing a lot on my cards lately and since I have my machine out - I sewed the edges here. This is a large 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card! This design is from Fridays Sketchers challenge blog.

I colored the martini image with my Copics markers and outlined it with a grey Prismacolor marker.

I cut my sentiment with a rectangle Nestability and added a couple of gem stones for sparkle!

Just a reminder that Kristin at Arful Inkables is offering free shipping through August (just a few more days!) on orders over $35.00 and she also has some cute new charms (dragon, fairy, frog, motor cycle, mushroom and wedding couple) and acrylic blocks on her site. So if you've been thinking of getting something now's the time to hop over there!!
