Sip, Sip Hooray for FMS 406

I was inspired today by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches to use Sip, Sip Hooray. This is a new set to me - first outing today - but is from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.
My second inspiration came from the wine cellar. There's more than a little rose in there and it makes a fine bubbly too. Hence the use of Petal Pink as the starting colour of this card. 😀

I was very impressed with how easy it was to fill the champagne glasses with the watercolour filler stamp. Given the variety of glasses and accessories and how easy it is to line the elements up, this set will be getting a lot more use.

I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to make a Petal Pink frame to outline the centre panel which I made by embossing a panel of Basic Black with the Scripty folder, then highlighting the text with some Golden Glitz pigment ink.

The gold is picked up in the layered circles behind the glasses and the coloured rhinestones - coloured with a dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend.
