Happy Hour for FMS47

Greetings, Stampers! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I was able to get caught up on some paper projects yesterday, including a 32 card swap, whew! I'll be posting that card in a couple weeks after all the swappers have received theirs. I was also able to complete this card, which features the Happy Hour Stamp Set. I just love it! Scroll all the way down to see all the cute images included in this 17 stamp set. It's great for so many occasions.

I finished this card just in the nick of time to be able to submit it for the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge. I was perusing the other projects made with this sketch last night, and I was really amazed at all the beautiful creations. You should check it out! You're sure to be inspired.

Before I forget to give credit where it is due, I have to mention that this project was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest recently, which I altered up just a bit to use only Stampin' Up products. The scalloped circle behind the glass is actually a doily, cut with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit. I used two embossing folders, Chevron and Perfect Polka Dots, to add lots of fun texture. The tiny bow made from Linen Thread was attached to the tag with a drop of Tombo Multi Adhesive.
