SSD02 A grain of Salt

It's my birthday later on this week and well.... I think I need to take my birthday this year with a grain of salt. And no - I won't tell you how old I'm turning.... So when I saw this week's Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday sketch, well I knew what set I'd be using. This week's sketch was designed by Kim Teasdale, our guest sketch artist this month. I think I'll be having one of these margaritas on Friday.

I had so much fun making this card. Yes, I cheated a little bit on the sketch. If you know me, I always find a way to make what I want to use work. I've used the set called Margarita Birthday available at Skipping Stones Design. I've colored the margarita with my Tombow Markers and then used Diamond Stickles around the rim to look like Salt. I've used two different sentiments from the set to complete the card. This is a super fun set and also comes with a glass of wine - Kim Teasdale made an amazing sample using this set last week.
