Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I made a festive card using the Clink stamp set and matching dies from Reverse Confetti.

Cheers card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Reverse ConfettiI used a pair of die cut glasses as my focal image.  The glasses were die cut from white cardstock, then stamped with the partially inked matching stamp.  I used a shimmery gold ink for a champagne-like look.   They are arranged at the top of a white pierced square die cut, using foam tape for dimension. 

For the sentiment, I cut the word "cheers" from gold paper and from craft foam.  After layering the pieces, I adhered them to the bottom of the square.  The square was placed near the bottom right side of a gray polka dotted patterned paper panel.  I added a trio of silver sequin "bubbles" over the glasses as a fun accent.  The finished panel was adhered to a dark gray card base.

Materials Used:
Clink stamp set, Clink dies (Reverse Confetti); Delicata Golden Glitz ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Steel Grey cardstock, Die-namics Pierced Square STAX dies (My Favorite Things); gold paper (Target); Recollections Grey Mini Dot designer paper (Michaels); silver sequins; craft foam; foam tape
