My Birth Stone

My SIL is having a birthday.  She is a wine sommelier, a wine professional, a wine connoisseur ... I think you get the idea.  We have shared in wine tasting only to discover that some $9 bottles of wine were as good if not better than a $50 bottle of wine.  In conclusion.... it's just a matter of your taste.  haha

If she could choose her birthstone, there is no doubt in my mind that it would be a "wine cork", even though it's not a stone. I saw this sentiment all over the web so there is no one particular person I can give credit.

This is JJ Wine from Bugaboo Stamps.  I'm entering the card into their Catch the Bug Challenge BINGO. I went with the middle row going horizontal: distressed, player's choice, and dies/punches.

A2, Lil' Inker rectangle stitched die, Gina Marie circled scalloped stitched die,
copic inks, I made cork and wine opener svg a long time ago, pop-up dots

Same card but at an angle to show dimension

same image but put in a scalloped card 5x5
I apologize for lighting, outside but a lot of blue


  1. Cely, this is perfect. Love that sentiment. I guess I haven't been looking in the right places. I hadn't seen it before. But this would fit my SIL too. Such an adorable card. I know your SIL will love it.

  2. Oh, how fun is that, Cely! Perfect image and perfect sentiment for someone like your SIL who loves wines. I know she's going to love it. :-D

  3. What a fun sentiment. I'm with you on the wine. I couldn't tell an expensive one from a cheap one!


  4. LOL I don't believe I have ever read this sentiment! It's perfect for wine lovers. Great cards and I know your SIL will love it. Your coloring of the bottle is gorgeous. And I love all the die cuts.

  5. Sure she'll love the card. Love JJ and her fun life images. Awesome card.

  6. lol I love JJ she's such a card! and adore your cork and bottle opener! Fabulous cards
