There is a new challenge today over at Paper Smooches!

I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and I knew immediately what I wanted to do!!

I found the perfect cut file for my Cameo over at the Silhouette Studio and I pulled out a couple of stamp sets and dies by Paper Smooches.

Here is what I came up with:

For my little martini glass I used a "Write On" transparency from Staples which I stamped with StazOn ink and then cut out with the die. The little olive was stamped on white card stock so that I could use it to hide the pop dot.

Supplies used: card stock - white, two shades of green, red; transparency - Staples; stamps - Free Spirits and Birthday Sampler by Paper Smooches; die - Free Spirits by Paper Smooches; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento and Jet Black by StazOn; Silhouette Studio cut file; twine - American Crafts; Toothpick; Pop Dots
