Cheers, Paper Players! {PP100}

Happy Wednesday friends! Surprised to see me posting in the middle of the week, right?!  It is just so exciting with our 100th challenge over at The Paper Players that I had to play again. It's been loads of fun seeing new inspiration in the gallery with our past challenges!  I have new stamps to play with so found a sketch that was just perfect for the set I wanted to use.  Here's LeAnne's fabulous sketch for Challenge #60:
Back in August when this challenge posted, I was playing around with fall colors and patterns.  Here is my original card for PP60:
And here is my new card:
I just love this Happy Hour stamp set!  Oh my gosh, how cute it is with all the patterns on the drinks and the separate accessories to decorate each glass.  It has some great sentiments too--all of the ones I've used here are from this set.  The Baja Breeze background is embossed with the new Chevron embossing folder and the Calypso Coral bottom was stamped in the same color with the lime slice.  
Love that you can stamp the drink accessories separate.  I even colored the itty bitty olive with markers!  I changed up the colors of my drinks: Baja Breeze, Summer Starfruit and Calypso Coral but kept the accessories all in Lucky Limeade for some continuity.
There's still plenty of time for you to play along with our 100th challenge over at The Paper Players.  The challenge is simple: choose any past challenge (except Anything Goes please), make a project and link it up!  We love seeing what challenges are inspiring to each of you.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Knew, I knew it I should have ordered this set too and your card just proves it! The card is adorable and talk about Embossing folders, woo-hoo that chevron one is "fab". The little drinks are adorable and have me wondering is it 5 o'clock somewhere?
