LOVE IT! CB is 7x6.75. a nice tall, thin one! so this is my favorite this week!
paper- CB is WWhite. used textured SU Ppie on bottom
ink- SU Ccelery, Ppink, Ppie, Oolive, and versamark, silver is "colorbox"
stamps- "cheers" from penguin pants (this is a 2 dstep stamping set), and little starburst if from "judith"
accessories- stamped glasses in versamark then heat embossed w/ glassy glaze, some A$1 michaels ribbon

love the simplicity and lack of layers! and all those wonderful colors! these colors are much more 'me' than those bold brights were!
have a super day!

ink- Ppink, versamark, & stazon black. colored image w/ sakura souffle pens in bright colors.
stamps- "cosmobella", & "cheers" by penguin pants (this is a great set! i got this at the stamp show a few weeks ago!)
accessories- bright blue eyelets (used crop-o-dile to set), corner rounder, silk flower, wide green satin ribbon, and narrow hot pink ribbon.
