Sugar Bowl Challenge 74

So, how are your Christmas preparations coming along?  Mine are reasonably on track, I think....but I DO keep adding 2 things for every 1 thing I take OFF my list!!
Last week, I was asked to make a 40th birthday card and I was given the theme of "wine, if possible".  At first I was stumped and thought I was just going to have to ignore the theme.  But then I started looking through all my stamps and decided Luv a Latte would be perfect, especially if I could give her a wine glass instead of her coffee.  

So, she has been coloured with Promarkers and Stickles (Stardust as her eyeshadow and Platinum for the bubbles and silver on the label and name). 

I have followed the Sugarbowl sketch and have even managed to follow the theme of "No shop bought Design Papers!  It's not often I manage THAT part!  I have used a Sizzix bubbly texture plate, Cuttlebug Starts folder and Crafts Too Flowers folder.  The edges of each piece of paper has been edged with a promarker and stickles and a few of the flowers have been coloured.

The glass and bottle are from the Pickles and Onion stamp set, which I hadn't yet gotten around to listing in the hope of selling..... it would appear that there was a very good reason for this....the glass and bottle are perfect for this girl, so I'll be keeping the set after all! 

So, I would like to enter the following challenges:
The SugarBowl - Sketch and theme
Passion for Promarkers - Celebrations (2nd entry)

And a reminder that I have a copy of My Memories Suite to give away.  The link is here.  
 Have a great week, everyone!
