Hi Everyone!
Hope you all are doing well!!!
I made this card for my Mom's Birthday which is today, Happy Birthday Mom!!! I'm also including it as an entry for Miss Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge. The challenge was to create something from one of the "Font" cartridges, but you don't have to use the actual font, it can be an image, as there are lots of "Font" cartridges that have really great images as well. I chose the "Cuttin' Up" cart for my project, because I knew it had exactly what I needed to make my mom's card,The Martini!!!

My mom is a HUGE fan of The Martini, ever since I can remember that's been the only alcohol she drank, except for wine. I used to love it when she would give me the olive & still do!!! Now me, I'm not such a fan of The Martini, in fact I think they are nasty, but give me the olive & I'm a happy camper!!! No need to call social services people, think the time limit has long since past!!! 

Ok, so on to my card, I found this ribbon at Michaels probably over a year ago & I knew then that I wanted to make my mom or sister (yeah, she likes those nasty things too) a Martini card, it's perfect!!! I'm really pleased with how it turned out, I hope you all like it as well!!! There is one thing I would change if I were to make it over again & that is the Bling-Bling. I would have put the green on the glass & the diamond on the card, but oh da well. :D
Sorry, not the best photos

The Martini glass can be found on pg. 74 of "Cuttin' Up" I used the Main cut & Shadow feature for the glass & the "Holly Cow" cut for the olive. Everything was cut @ 4"
I used PTI & AC Cardstock I used my I-Rock for the Bling-Bling as well as 
"Fired Brick Distress Stickles" for the pimento
 All Stamps & Dies are Miss Emma's
~Happy Birthday~"Stitched Oval Die" & sentiment is from "Gift Card Sentiments"
~Celebrate You~ "Scallop & Oval Stitched Die" & the sentiment is from "Many Greetings"
~Little Martini Glass is from "Anyday Bingo & Cross Word"
