Birthday Fizz...

There can’t be good living where there is not good drinking. -Benjamin Franklin

This week's Woodware USA Monochromatic Challenge challenged me! I struggled over which set to use, what color to pick...One Color??? How do you Pick Just ONE! And then Patterned Paper...everything I have has COLORS on it. But then I decided to make a birthday card for a friend and I knew Just which set, Cocktails is Perfect for my group! ;) So then it was just a matter of which drink to choose...well, if you haven't had a Tokyo Tea then you Must! So, that's my story, and here is my card...

I know, I know....Monochromatic means 1 color and I HAD to throw in the red cherry, but you know what? Rules are made to be broken!!! :)
