Cheers To You!

I made this card using the Bottom's Up stamp set that I won recently from a House That Stamps Built challenge.  I was pretty excited...who isn't when you win something..but also because it's such a fun set to make cards with!  They are so versatile that you could use them for a lot fun things...parties, summertime, birthdays, congrats, father's day and many more!  I'm not sure who or what I'll use this one for...I've left the inside blank for now.  I followed the sketch for Your Next Stamps monthly challenge.  I also used their Fishtail Die set that I purchased a couple weeks back.  They come with a varying length & width of fishtails so I'm sure I'll use them often.  I colored the glass of beer with my promarkers, then got really daring & used glossy accents over the entire thing.  Then I got even crazier & used some liquid applique over the foam to try & make it look frothy, fussy cut it out, and attached it to the glass with some foam dots. I realize that to most of you out there it's not very daring, but I had never used glossy accents or liquid applique before.  I didn't have any red dots, so I used my promarkers to color over some white ones.  The "Cheers to You sentiment is from Stampin Up.  I think it turned out pretty cute, although my fussy cutting could stand a bit more practice!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
