Would you like a glass of wine?

Hello! Here's a birthday card I made recently.  The recipient has been taking a number of wine tasting courses in the past couple of years so we got her a gift certificate for some more classes (or some special vintages to enjoy).  I thought this would be a nice card to go with the gift.  The stamp image is by Stamps Happen and I coloured it using the Tombow marker watercolouring technique using the image on the stamp block as my colour guide.  Next, I spritzed it lightly with Goosebumps and when they were dry, I sponged lightly with Antique Linen distress ink.  The image is matted on black linen paper, then mounted on a burgundy card base with a mustard fleck accent strip.  The card base and accent strip are edged with Memories Art Print Brown.  Inside it says, "Hope this is your best 29th birthday yet!"  I love that stamp!  It's from Impress Rubber Stamps.  On the envelope, I stamped the glass ring marks and splatters from Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz) in burgundy.  Don't you love it when a theme comes together?

Happy stamping!
