My Craft Spot "Cool Treats" Challenge



Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week the challenge is " Cool Treats". When I think of a cold treat, I see a nice cold strawberry margarita! MMMMM....SO YUMMY! LOL! It happens to be my birthday today AND I have fresh strawberries! I think I might just have myself a birthday treat!
This was a really fun card to make! I created the card in my gypsy by welding two martini glasses together from Smiley Cards. I then cut the inside mat and inked a soft blue around it. For the inside pink I cut another inside layer and trimmed it down, tore the top, and used a corner rounder on the bottom. I then inked it with black and then white to get that cool speckled look. I cut the strawberry from Paisley and embossed it and inked white over the embossing. The straw I cut by hand and added a line of chunky glitter for the sugar....gotta have the sugar! LOL! To finish I stamped the tag and added a crinkle and twine bow.
SUPPLIES:
My Craft Spot- Inside and Out #2 stamp set, Spring Moss Crinkle Ribbon, Divine Valentine Twist Twine
Cricut- Smiley Cards and Paisley
Cuttlebug Embossing folder- Swiss Dots

I hope you all like my card and will play along this week! Please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created! I promise you won't be disappointed! Have a great day!

This looks good enough to drink, although I thought margaritas usually came with salt. I guess since it's your birthday, you can have it any way you want. *_* Happy Birthday!
