Good morning!

Today, I am sharing my take on Skipping Stones sketch 125 inspired by non other than the triumphant return of Mad Men to TV, also known as the primary reason I don't get enough sleep on Sunday nights and start off the week tired, oh well, it's totally worth it! (LOL!)

Enough about my sleep or lack there of, here is my card:

I used Chic Martini to create this card.  I stamped the martini glass and setiment in black ink and followed up with the stars stamped in red ink.  I colored the olives in the glass green and added a gem to the stir stick.  

I created the olive paper with the olive stamp from Chic Martini that I stamped repeatedly and colored the center of the olive red with a marker.   I finished off the sketch with some border punched paper in green and gray and some red ribbon that I adorned with a few extra gems. 

And here is a look at the sketch:
