Shock Top Cheers!!!!!

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: There is a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH and this time we want to see cards that are inspired by a food or beverage label so you can take your inspiration from the colors, the images, the food or beverage itself, etc. 
So here is my card that was created using one of the labels of these delicious beers.

Isn't this illustration just super cool?  I love the colors, the image and all the awesome details of it, like the hair made of wheat straws and the face made with an orange segment and those sunglasses, WOW!! But anyway, since I don't have a beer mug stamp, I decided to sketch this mug from one of ours, LOL!!  The other time I made a card with a beer mug in it was THIS ONE in which I traced the mug on a SU catalog. 
The pattern paper is from my stash, the sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Happy Hour" from the 2012-2013 catalog.
This card is for one of my hubby's friends from work who's celebrating his 63rd. Birthday next week.
I'm sure he'll get a kick out of this card, tee hee!!

Here is a peek at the collection where this label came from.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

A simple sentiment from Hero Arts for the inside, guys don't like to much fuss.

So I hope you come and play along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we can't wait to see what you create. 

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
