SSD023 Celebrate!!!

Care to have a margarita?? After all, it's 5:00 somewhere right? Hehehe...After a couple weeks away from Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday I'm back!!! Life has been hectic but things are slowly settling down a bit again. Can I just say OMG OMG OMG!!!! With it now being May, guess what that means... A new sketch artist and this month - OMG!!!! It's Jen del Muro!!! WOW!!!! How exciting!! I love Jen's blog, I heart 2 stamp. It's amazing and Jen always has the most amazing eye candy to feast your eyes upon!!! Can you tell how excited I am? Jen is with us the entire month along with our fabulous Guest Designers, Deb Felts (gotta love her too!!!!) and Jennifer Ingle. This month is like having stamping royalty!!

Jen created an absolutely amazing sketch for us this week... and then I picked an image that was a little too big (you gotta love when you don't realize this until you are about to put the card together... oops!). SO needless to say, me being me... I altered the sketch a little. I moved the 3 buttons onto the vertical section (rather than being beside it) because it wasn't fitting quite right for me and then I omitted part of the sketch - can you tell what it was? I found that with the lime hanging out of the glass that having a circle (or any small shape) didn't make sense and crowded the image.... I promise you Jen that next week I'll follow your sketch to the letter!!!

I used one of the images from the set called Margarita Birthday that I colored with my Tombow Markers and then used Diamond Stickles around the rim of the glass to look like sugar. Hope you like it!!!
