Cocktail time ....

.... it's happy hour over at Less is More - LIM37 - this week.  Chrissie and Mandi have given us the theme of COCKTAILS for this week's card - now we can interpret that as we like - be literal, take the colours of cocktails as the inspiration for your card or run with your imagination!

I did try to be creative and run with my imagination, but with all the decorating and tidying going on in my house at the moment, my mojo is a bit thin on the ground.  So I decided to go with a literal take on the challenge and I've made a birthday card.

I printed Lola Rose onto directly onto my card and then cut her out using my nesties.  I added some colour with distress inks and layered the image onto gold holographic card - which, amazingly, shows up really well in this photo!!!  I cut the sentiment out with my banner nestie and again layered onto holographic card.  I printed a second image of Lola Rose and coloured her clothes and bag using Promarkers, cut them out and attached them to the main image.  Finally, for a bit of glamour, I added some feathers behind the sentiment and a large cocktail to toast the birthday girl!

Image:  Pink Petticoat - Lola Rose (discontinued)
Spellbinders:  Wonky Rectangles (S4-306) # 6, Nested Lacey Pennants (S5-029)
Promarkers:  Denim Blue, Midnight Blue, Cerise, Pale Pink, Satin, Bright Green
Accessories:  Feathers, card and glitter from stash

Here's a close up of the sentiment - it's fun!

Today the decorators are painting my kitchen and family room - which means I can't get in there to do the ironing - great excuse not to do it!!  Later today I'm off to the school Harvest Festival - Year 5 (Kathryn's class) lead the service - so I think there may be a proud mum moment later today!! 

Finally, I decided to have a play with the cocktail personality quiz that Chrissie and Mandi shared with us - here's what it says today:

You Are Made Of Intuition, Compassion, and Brilliance

3 parts Intuition
2 parts Compassion
1 part Brilliance

And a Splash of Style

Serve over ice

I like that one!  That's all for now.

Not seen these digi's before - at first glance I thought she was a bella. She's cute and the sentiment is genius - will remember that one!

Your gold holographic mounting is quite amazing - so effective. We're still mid decorating but R is doing all the painting himself.
