Birthday Card for a man

Today I am showing my second inspiration piece for the Country View Challenge, where the theme is "Birthday card for a man", chosen by Corrie. I went with drinks which is more neutral than masculine but this one IS for a man so... 

I stamped the glass at the front first and masked it, stamping the bottle and the second glass over it using grey and blue inks. I added the spray from the ice cube hitting the drink in various shades of blue.
I coloured the ice cubes, glasses, lemon and bottle with pencils and stamped the words in black.

The sentiment "It's Your Special Day" is from the Essentials Sentiments set SYC007 from Sentimentally Yours.

All the other stamps are from Visible image, most from the Keep your Gin up set with the "today's forecast..." borrowed from the 99% Chance of Wine set.

Your turn to create a Birthday card for a man and link up your project to the Country View Challenge for the chance to win a £20 voucher for the Country View Craft shop.
