Food and/or drink with Ruby

Hi everyone, I'm here to share my design piece for Ruby's Rainbow. I got to choose the theme this time and chose 'Food and/or Drink'. Can't wait to see what you produce. Here's mine...

It's the first time I've used this gorgeous stamp, coloured with copics. The papers are Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection. I've used 'Faded Jeans' distress ink to bring all the elements together. The border is a Martha Stewart punch with a Docrafts bow added. The sentiment has been stamped with black ink and embossed with clear detail powder. I think this gives a cleaner finish than using black detail powder but that's just a personal preference. Its been cut out with a stately circle die. I was really pleased that I managed to get it lined up so well!! To finish off I added some silver pearls and a glittery 1 (this is for my Great Nephew Gabriel's birthday at the beginning of October).

Now it's your turn. I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and check out the wonderful creations from my fab team mates.
