Let's Pop Some Corks!

Hello from a very hot and humid corner of the UK!  I know some of you have cool and damp conditions, but we have caught the edge of the continental heatwave and here in the east it has been sunny sunny sunny and touching 30C.  I'm loving the sunshine, but not so keen on the heat, lol, is there any way to turn the sun down a bit please?

Anyhoo, it's not often I combine challenges for a card, I prefer to do one at a time, but today sees me being a bit lazy, having only made one card this afternoon.

I've used a previously uninked stamp that I've had a while. It was one of those "ooh I've got to have that" stamps ..... you know the sort I mean!

Ingredients for this simple card are:
Medium:  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers:  First Editions - New Leaf
Sentiment:  Hero Arts

You might just be able to make out the sparkle on the back paper, it made me thing of the bubbles in the booze!

16 ears, 32 feet, 8 noses - here's a close up of the stamp for you:

Hugs, Sxx
