Birthday card for a friend and a few challenges to boot!

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick post to show you the card I made for my friend at work who is due to celebrate her 40th birthday.  Now I won't say she likes a drink - I'll let you decide when you see the card, and here it is:
I have used a Bugaboo image because they just crack me up and this one is called Tequila Stella.  I think it is brilliant for those folk who like to let their hair down (well alright I mean get totally smashed at a party!!!LOL).
I coloured the image with my promakers and then cut it out and adhered it to one of Susie's fabulous die cuts (available at Die Cut Dreams - you really should pay a visit - loads to choose from and great prices)
I added some crystal stickles for the bubbles on the glass of champagne.  I used two large flowers (from a candy win ages ago) secured together with a brad and then adhered to the card with silicone and then stuck the sentiment over the corner of the die cut.  I added three little purple gems on to the die cut.
I made this into an easel card to fit the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge and it will also fit the challenge at YNS which again is easel cards.
I printed off a sentiment on the computer in matching colours to the Tequila sentiment and added this to the bottom part of the easel card on top of some Papermania Henbury Lane DP.  I added a piece of black lace across the middle as the "stopper" for my easel card and added little purple tear drop gems to the lace.  Finished it off with some roses at the top right hand corner above the image and added a little flower gem on to the birthday sentiment and voila!!
I will also enter this card into the challenges at:
