Seize the Birthday #227

We have a new topping up over at the Seize the Birthday challenge blog and guess what?  It was my choice this time around!  It wasn't a difficult decision on my part.  Ahem....BEVERAGES!  

I could have went one of two ways: Coffee or Happy Hour.  Any guesses?

Yup!  It's Happy Hour Somewhere.

I began my die cutting my bar cart elements with various shades of metallic cardstocks.  I opted for a kraft background which I ran through my current favorite embossing folder. I adhered the cart and all of its elements onto the panel, framed it out with a black metallic border and added a gold heat embossed sentiment.  I think this has a classy retro look to it and would be perfect for both male and female recipients.

I invite you to visit our blog for more inspiration.  We'd love for you to play along.  Toppings are wonderful but any birthday card is welcome.  Hope to see you in our gallery!
