A Chocolate Martini For Sue

Earlier this week was the birthday of my awesome friend and stamping buddy, Sue. I haven't been able to see her in over a year, but the last time we were together she made the most delicious (and dangerous) Chocolate Martinis. Yumm. Ever since I ordered the Happy Hour Stamp Set, I couldn't wait to make a martini for her!

I used markers to color both the drink and the strawberry garnish. Then, I punched the image out with an extra large oval punch. The frame was made with a Designer Frame Embossing Folder, which I sponged with Pretty in Pink Ink. A little Dazzling Details was added to the strawberry.

A coordinating greeting was stamped inside, and I added a little scrap of DSP to the bottom. I love a stamp set with plenty of coordinating images and greetings, and this set has both.
