heart tattoos, faulty fun, and raisin' a glass

What fun to have a chance to create a snarky birthday card for a dear friend who has stepped into the great divide...{50}!  This card is entered into the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers SOSS #50: O is for 50 (surprise)!

I am also entering this in the Seize the Birthday challenge for January 14, 2016. Topping are to be clean and simple.  I kept it at a minimum, but just had to add the champagne.

My main image is a stamp from Stamps Happen.  It is not a current stamp.  I colored the panel with Copics, adding a bit of Stickles for the birthday girls' jewelry.  She has a red tattoo on her back, to remind her of all those who love her!  The glasses dimensional with Glossy Accents.  The Anna Griffin champagne bottle was embossed and a snippet of trim added.  

Thanks so much for stopping by, it's been a long time since I have posted to my blog, many other interesting directions in my life...all good, but it is so rewarding to have my fingers inky, stained, and creativity flowing again.  Happy 2016, may it find you health and every happiness.
