Cardio Majestix "Last Orders" Birthday Card

I'm trying to get ahead of myself making cards for birthdays coming up in the next couple of months.

For this card, for a male friend, I started with using the Sweet Poppy "Circle Aperture Stencil" with "Shadow Grey" and "Forget-Me-Not" Ranger Archival Inks to create the coloured background circle.

Initially, I was thinking I would make a clock, using the bottles as the numbers, but decided against that idea.  I used a small bottle stamp from the Cardio-Majestix stamp set called "Last Orders" stamped in Versafine Clair "Green Oasis" ink.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" words using the Hobby Art Stamp set called "Greetings For Friends - CS158D".

I mounted the card on to co-ordinating green card and then on to a card blank, finally adding a spotty background using a silver glitter Unibal Signo pen.
