Give me wine which maketh glad…

I’ve made a card tonight featuring the lovely Wine O’clock image from Saturated Canary.

Now as soon as I saw this image I knew I wanted it, problem was it wasn’t available at Krista’s shop, no, this one came on a CD with a magazine, Complete Cardmaking.  Big problem as it was the last edition published and it was sold out!  I entered a blog candy contest where two of the magazines were offered as prizes but sadly didn’t win.  A crafty friend of mine won a copy but that didn’t help me as you don’t share digis.  So I put the research skills I’ve honed at work into action and I hunted down a copy of the magazine, although it was on a site I had never used and so I was sure I’d either never see the magazine or get a refund as they were sold out.  Luckily the website turned out to be legit and they did have the magazine and so I am the happy owner of this image and Bathing Beauty, another Saturated Canary image that came on the CD.  And of course I just had to colour her up once I had her.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Sketch Saturday, it only went up today but as I had to grab this opportunity to get this card done it was perfect timing.  I just loved the circles in the sketch and when I went hunting for other challenges to help me decorate my card I couldn’t go past Cupcake Inspirations.  I’ve taken the black and white and the various toppers as my embellies from the cupcakes featured.

I cut the bow and shoes from Grungeboard and enamelled them with UTEE.  Lots of pearls and some roses and I was done.  With all my girlie embellies and my party girl image this card fits the ladies’ night theme over at Crafting When We Can perfectly so I am also entering my card in their challenge.
