Take It With a Grain of Salt



I haven't had a margarita in a loooooong time but I do remember that they used to go down way too easily!  :) Dangerous little drinks they were but I thought they'd be perfect for the two current "black and white plus a colour" challenges that are going on.  CAS-ual Fridays is letting us choose our colour while Dynamic Duos has asked us to use Lucky Limeade with our black and white.  I used the sketch from Retrosketches for my layout and I used the obligatory touch of Stickles Clear Rock Candy to give the salty rim of the glass a little sparkle.  :)  I'm hoping to get back with another entry for CAS-ual Fridays with a different colour but we'll see if time allows.  Have a lovely day!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up

Stamps:  (Drink & sentiment from Tiki Time) Market Street Stamps, (Circles from Background Basics: Circles) PTI
Inks: (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Glitter:  (Stickles Clear Rock Candy) Ranger
Copics:  YG03, YG23

Love this card - what's that saying, One margaritas, two margaritas, three margaritas (something about hitting the floor?) lol! Great take on the sketch!

Fun card, kiddo - great use of color, design and a touch of sparkle! Yes, as I recall, these suckers can be deadly. Love it.

For me, it's Pina Colada's... but it's only 9am in the morning, so maybe I might think about it just a little later on in the day. ps FUN design Jen!
