Hello everyone: I've been a bit slow posting like I used to, I don't know why, I think it's this awful weather, ughhh!! I'm tired of gray, cold days so my creativity is like slumbering, 😔zzzzz.  Today I decided to get in here and do something so I made a simple card and here it is.

I just sketched this bottle from a picture of wine bottles from Google, colored it with SU Cherry Cobbler ink, a bit of gold gel pen for the cap, a bit of Bashful Blue and River Rock SU markers for the label.
The sentiment and the wine glass are from a retired SU set called "Happy Hour", I only stamped the top of the wine glass with the blue marker and with the writing tip, completed the stem and base. I used the black Prismacolor pencil for the shading on the bottom.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I used 3 different stamp sets for the inside, the Delicate Borders from SU, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Tea in the Garden and the corks at the bottom from another retired SU set called "Tuscan Vineyard".

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

I chose to interpret the cue card word as the Bouquet of a Wine.
Hope it's ok.😊

What? You sketched the wine bottle? You're so good! Love the simplicity and how you did the wine glass in blue to give it such nice transparency. Brilliant take on the "bouquet" cue. You have a very clever mind, Maria. I've been impressed many times. Good to see you stamping. Sometimes all it takes is just to get started. Hugs!
