Happy Birthday Zoe!

Good Morning,
No, it isn't my Zoe's birthday again! but my friend Zoe who's little boy Ben is in Zack's class. Now I didn't quite realise 'till about 1.45 on Friday that today was her special day! eek! and so I turned to 2 challenges to make this card in something of a hurry!
The first challenge was a cute little sketch by Your Next Stamp Challenges and a colour challenge with Connie and Mary using Peach Parfait, Baja Breeze and Riding hood Red and I just loved this colour combo, it just seemed so fresh and summery. I started with a Crumb Cake base and stitched round the first layer once the dsp (from the level 1 hostess pack) was added, In Colour ribbon was used to tie the bow, it is so soft and easy to tie :-)
When I saw the colours I immediately thought of the Cheers to You stamps, plus I think Zoe would be rather partial to a cocktail (just don't mention the robot dancing ;-)) Lol!
I did change the scallop edge to around the side and I punched out a background using the Decorative Label Punch instead of an oval ((if it does not fit the sketch well enough, please feel free to discount my entry)) I also added a layer of crystal effects to the glass.
I also stitched inside too and added a bit of decoration for good measure with the sentiment from Curly Cute.
I hope she likes her card and has a wonderful birthday! Happy Birthday Zoe!
Thanks for dropping by today and Stampin' Hugs to you,
