One Stop Craft Saturday Challenge #84 ~ Beer Me

This week at One Stop Crafts, Chrissie came up with an awesome sketch. I hope you can join in the fun! Plus, Digi Sparkle is our sponsor. They have some GREAT images and not just one, but a FULL set of freebie images each month. This month you can get Bugs for FREE! Their prices are reasonable and the selection is sure to offer you just what you're looking for. Check them out and let them know One Stop Craft Challenge sent you their way.

I thought the Beer Selection set was perfect for Father's Day and other masculine cards. Heck, I even have a few girlfriends who will giggle when I give them a bear card. THANK YOU Digi Sparkles for letting me play with your awesome images. I LOVE there are multiple images in the set. For my card I chose one image as the 'feature' and created my own designer paper with the other images. I'm sure you could use them for something other than beer; the 2 large foamy mugs would be great as root beer floats.

Color Inspiration ~ Color Throwdown #96

The sentiment was part of a sheet I picked up at Jo-ann's in the clearance bin (Fifty Cents for about 10 verses). The handsome gentleman peeking from the edge of the photo is my dad. He journeyed to heaven quite suddenly 5 years ago on June 15th. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and wish for one more hug.

Image Detail
I added Diamond Glaze over the glass part of the image. Usually I get stressed out with bubbles, but I thought they added a bit to my cervasa.

The inside of my card is all digital. I created the beer imaged paper in Word and the elements of the verse are all freebies from Paper Crafts magazine and Die Cuts With a View.
