My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

A Toast to You...

Hi Everyone,
I was thinking of my niece while I was stamping this card that I'm sharing today. She celebrated her milestone 21st birthday this past weekend, so making this card with the new sentiment from DRS Designs, "A Toast to You", seemed very appropriate.
I chose a purple background because it reminds me of grapes and wine, along with being a girlie color. I stamped the top portion using the Peacock Feather, (hard to see, even in person it's very faint) along with the Easy Dot Background. I used a couple of different shades of purple ink, and the look came out bubbly and festive!
To go along with the sentiment, I stamped the wine glass, (from the Pour Me...Bottle and Glass stamp) colored and fussy cut it and adhered it to the card. After adding the die cut border embellished with gems, the wine needed a little sparkle too, so I enhanced it with some glitter glue :)
