Cheers to You!

I recently completed this card for my swap group, and it's in the mail. We were asked to choose a set to use that is brand new, and I chose Cheers to You. I look forward to seeing all the fantastic creations I will receive in return!

I don't normally use bright colors, but I think they're growing on me... this is Green Galore and Gable Green paired up with Basic Gray. I chose them based on the color I used for the yummy margarita! And speaking of which, take a closer look at this detail:

The salt across the top of the glass is actually some Chunky Essentials! I just made a thin line of glue with my Tombow Adhesive and then sprinkled on some of the crystals. Quick and easy, and really made a difference.

Hmmm... who's in the mood for a margarita? :)

What a great card!!! I think you did a wonderful job! I also love your opening statment. It stands out as a parent to let others know even though we are demonstrators our family comes first. I do mine as a hobby and do an occasional party for friends.
Best of luck and you do great work!
