Ice Tea Cheers - RS18 & CR84FN84

Today's card is for Retro Sketches 18 (and by the way, I can't get over that it's been 18 weeks already since this challenge site launched!) & CR84FN 84. 

This is the first card I've made with my brand new set Happy Hour.  Isn't this a fun little set....I've got so many ideas!
I stuck pretty close to the sketch drawing, not really tweeking anything, but on the color challenge, my neutral is a little darker than the original color palette. 

I stamped the ice tea glass once on the white cardstock, then again on a scrap peice.  I cut out the drink part and added the lemon and straw.  It's all in the details!  It's very hard to see in the photo, but I embossed the bottom red panel with a large polka-dot embossing folder.  I also decorated the inside of the card.....

Here's a list of my supplies......
Stamps: Happy Hour
Paper: Real Red, Soft Suede, White, Sunny Days DP
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Soft Suede
Accessories: Large Polka-dot EF, Neutrals buttons, White string, Notebook Tab punch
