New Job Cheers

Wahoo for a new year and new beginnings. I wanted to make a fun card for my friend who recently got a new job (same company just a step up). She's been working really hard to get there so I thought it was appropriate to congratulate her and remind her to chillax for a moment.
Sketch Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day #152

Inspiration
This card is for a friend who worked hard to receive a promotion. It's certainly a new beginning for her. Now she can sit back and CHILLAX!
New Beginnings: One Stop Craft Challenge #112, Creative Card Crew, Simon Says Challenge
Daring Cardmakers Challenge ~ At the Beach
365 Cards Day 292 ~ Festive Friday
The challenge is to include 2 things you'd find at a celebration. Every good party I host has drinks and flowers.
Crazy 4 Challenges #68 ~ Celebrate Something
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 99 ~ Flowers
My Creation
I don't do shaped cards very often, and used a kit to come up with my coconut drink.
Details
An accordion folded paper scrap and a toothpick make the perfect tropical drink umbrella. A line of glitter gives a faux salt/sugared rim.

Inside
Just love this verse in the Taylored Expressions stamp set.
