Becky's Birthday Card

Hi Blogland friends!  It's been almost 5 months since I've been on here!  I sure have enjoyed the break and SO much has happened!  My daughter got engaged this summer while we were on vacation in the Bahamas!  Their wedding is June 13, 2019!  My husband decided to take early retirement...his last day of work is December 3, 2018!  And even more exciting, my son and daughter in law are expecting our first grandchild in April!  We found out this weekend it's a BOY!!  I'm still on cloud nine:)

On to my card!  My daughter's birthday is on Halloween and she loves wine, so I chose JJ Wine from Bugaboo Stamps (my inspiration came from Dawn's card found here).  I colored her with copics, black wink of stella on the polk a dots, and glossy accents for her glasses, wine glass, and bottle.  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch #617 (I turned it sideways).  I printed and cut out her favorite wine...Barefoot Pinot Grigio for the wine label and the sentiment is computer generated.  I cut the bubbles out on my cameo, orange marmalade distress ink, gems from Hobby Lobby, DP by Martha Stewart Halloween pad and CS from The Paper Studio.
