Graphicat's May Sketch Challenge!

I'm so in love with the new drinkin' images from Graphicat Designs- so many fun options for colouring and making cards for my girlfriends ;) I had a blast putting together this card for the May Sketch Challenge and I hope my card inspires you to create something pretty, too (and if not that, maybe it'll inspire you to invite me out for margaritas?). Cheri is releasing a pile of fantastic images this month, I'm sure you'll easily find one to love! Here's the card I put together with a few of my favourites!
... as much as I adore the cocktail images, I think my fave new design is the LIMES- I love limes (and the opportunity to play with so many of my lime green Copics!), Cheri has drawn them to perfection here- love 'em!
Cocktails are always better shared with a friend... I love pretty sugar rimmed glasses (hooray for Distress Stickles!), fruity garnishes and paper umbrellas!
