Sweet Sunday 26

At last, here is my take on Karen Sweet Sunday sketch for this week. I've been thinking about doing this all week and just finally sat down to get it done. I had to flip the sketch to make it work for this card. I made this card for my martini lovin' sister.

Here are the details:

The stamps and sentiment are from a set called "Merry Christmas" by MFT (My Favorite Things). The martini glasses were stamped on polyshrink plastic, colored with colored pencils and shrunk with a heating gun. I partly colored my image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol to blend and paper pieced the chair, floor and wrapping paper. I double stamped the image so I could cut out the tree, the person, the wrapping paper, the ribbon spool and the packages. I put the packages up on dimensionals and added some kaiser red pearls for the Xmas balls. I punched two pink corner pieces with an EK success punch and added a MS border punch of scallops and circles. The sentiment and image are popped on dimensionals as well. All of the paper was from my stash of scraps.

Gotta run and get this posted before the deadline. Hope you enjoy it!
