Martinis for Jen's SFYTT!

I love Jen del Muro's SFYTT! Always makes Saturdays so much fun, even if I don't have time to do the sketch. But I did this week!
I've had this martini paper for a while and I knew I wanted to make a congrats card, probably for the day my friend finally finishes her MA thesis. When I saw Jen's sketch this weekend this seemed perfect! I also bought Sandylion Essentials martini stickers a while back from a dollar store and knew they were going with this. The clear glass is difficult to see, but I did add some shading around it on the cardstock to help it stand out a bit more. The shaker is silver, hence the little reflection on it.
The blue cardstock seemed too plain so I added some hand-drawn flourishes. The white paper I'm not sure of. I used red ink around the edges but not sure I totally love it. It will be ok though. Overall I really like the card. Lots of room inside to write nice things or find something silly to put inside!
Paper: "Cheers" by Karen Foster, white, blue and green cardstock
Ink: light green and red from ColorBox Primary colour wheel
Accessories: Martini stickers by Sandylion Essentials, red ric rak by Offray, black pen

So cheers to all of you!
