Have a Drink

Hi!  I found some time today to play along with the latest Muse challenge.  This is my first time playing along at Muse and as soon as I saw Tracey's adorable card, I decided to join in.  Ironically, that fabulous penguin set is on its way to me at the moment :)  

I took my inspiration from the stenciled background, background colors, layered die cuts, layout and the drink the penguin is holding.  Here's my card:

I started with a white card base and used a stencil cut with my Cameo ages ago.  I sponged Tumbled Glass and Crumb Cake ink in a similar way to Tracey.  The sentiment was stamped onto the card base using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I then stamped and colored the drink and accessories from Paper Smooches Free Spirits set.  I adhered the glass directly to the card base then layered the umbrella and straw.  I put the flower on last then covered it with Glossy Accents.  

Thanks for visiting.  Here's Tracey's Muse card.

Products used:

Stamps:  Free Spirits (Paper Smooches)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Tumbled Glass, Crumb Cake
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It
Accessories:  Free Spirits dies, Copics, Silhouette-cut stencil, Glossy Accents


Edited to Add:  This card was Top Three at Muse.
