Stampin' Sisterhood June Challenge

Hi Stampin' Sisters!   Today Jacquie has the Stampin' Sisterhood June Challenge up over at the blog.
It's an inspiration photo this month -  and look how fun it is!  Fun AND yummy!
And here's the card I was inspired to make from it:
I used the wine glass (#639-05) and Wine Flies sentiment (#640-01) from the new 2012 Happy Hour group of stamps.  Check it out -  Dave has tons of fun, tongue in cheek sentiments and an assortment of beverage glasses - for all your Happy Hour card needs!!

I colored the wine glass with Barn Door and Scattered Straw Ranger Distress Markers (a new purchase!)  The Postage Stamp Nestability die cut back panel is embossed with Tim Holtz Diamond Plate embossing folder and the wings (Tim Holtz Heart Wings Die) are embossed with Tim Holtz Riveted Metal embossing folder - both by Sizzix.  I tied twine around the Postage Stamp panel and added rhinestones to the sentiment panel. 

Kind of a funky little design - but I like it!  and actually - everything (accept the paper & the rhinestones) that I used on this card is new!! (I've been VERY bad!!)

I like it too, and this card is such fun with that sentiment. How clever to add the wings to make the words so true!! that wine looks a little RED to me, not really my order at the bar, and you know that for a fact!! Hugs, GF!
