Margaritas are really, REALLY popular in Austin, TX. Make the "A Charmed Life" glass truly authentic-looking by stamping it on vellum , then paper piecing just the liquid with this awesome Astrobright Green Textured CS from Paper Temptress, has kind of a bubbly, hammered look to the paper which perfectly mimics a slushy frozen concoction! Putting it behind the velum would have more realistic I suppose, but you see less of that cool texture that way, this way also you don't have to worry about hiding your adhesive when you just glue it on top! (Isn't that cool how the colored layers behind show through the glass?) I used this again in the mats plus the other two textured shades, yellow and red. Card base is Paper Temptress Blu Raspberry, and black mat (that's just one big black sqaure by the way behind there, isn't it kind of cool thow that black outline snakes around...?) is Gina K Black Onyx . I painted on a little white from my SU! white craft pad for shine, outlined the rim with Stardust Stickles, and stuck some adhesive metal dots onto the charm ring. Balck ribbon is from the Floral Frenzy kit. I love how this layout turned out: after moving my panels back and forth for longer than I will admit to, I finally decided offsetting them to the edges made a really funky fresh look i was kind of going for a "beach towel"/'club" vibe, how'd I do?
