Anyone for Cocktails

Please don't adjust your screens, this is supposed to be black, white and shades of grey. Not quite sure how it came to be, the image I chose and coloured first was a pink poodle sipping drinks. Then I changed my mind and I stamped out Charlie 007, unfortunately my colouring makes him look slightly tatty and not at all 007.

Still I'm going to enter him into this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge - midnight margaritas.
I followed the sketch on the Cupcake challenge- #65. Then coloured him in using Zig Brushables, I added a few sparkle bubbles above his glass with stickles. The papers are from Papermania, layered on black gloss card.
I didn't think that proper flowers really went with this card, so I made
the embellishments myself from a piece of the paper that had circles in different sizes on it, I cut them out sprayed them with water, scrunched them up and gently opened them out, then sprayed with a little silver glitter spray from Crafters Companion. Next I layered them up and put a silver faux brad (card candy from Craftwork Cards) in the centre.

I finished the card with a piece of ribbon and black gems from stash, and some wording. Not sure which company the wording stamp was from, it was just an unmounted one I picked up at Port Sunlight earlier this year.
Sorry but my photos aren't very good and although they look quite dull in my pictures, the card in real life looks pretty good and quite glitzy.

Great card Sue and perfect for the challenges. Love the monotone look you've got going on. Charlie looks like a really cheeky chappy. Love your 'nearly' flowers too.
