Happy Hour for CCMC213

Greetings! I have another project to share with you today featuring the Happy Hour Stamp Set. Yesterday, I made a holiday card using the same set. I wanted to show you how versatile it is, and by simply changing up the colors and the greeting, you have a birthday card. I opted for the citrus-y hues in the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, which I thought worked well for a tropical drink.

The Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge was the inspiration for this project.  Great sketch, ladies!

I stamped my images, and then cut out the Whisper White Card Stock with the Apothecary Accents Framelit. I traced the outside of the Framelit on Lucky Limeade Card Stock with a pencil, and then cut it out by hand for a mat.

Aaah, now that's more like it! I loved your drink with the candy cane in it yesterday, but it's so hot here, I can't think Christmas quite yet. Very well done!!
