Today I'm featuring the Martinis on Me a la mode. How adorable is she sitting in the big ol' martini glass??? I could use one that size right about now but that's another story! She was colored with copics. Not sure why, but I felt that she needed to be a blonde. Ha! I added stickles to the rims of both glasses. Some pretty ribbon, a button and some bling complete the front.

For the inside I added some glass die-namics from the Let's Toast die-namics and more chevron stripes.

Did you notice the round corner accents on the front?? The sketch is the SSS152 and it called for circles layers in the corners. I wanted to do something fun with the chevron stripes so I cut out several in coordinating colors.

Once I laid them out, I adhered them to a circle I cut out using the Circle Stax, then just cut off the excess. Once all the excess was cut off, I matted it onto a larger Circle Stax die.


Thanks for stopping by!!!






Hugs,
