Happy Birthday "Cheers" Card

I have a friend whose birthday is in December and she has a party every year with the subtitle "Midweek Merrymaking".  She loves to try new cocktails so I thought she would like this CAS card.  I am looking forward to giving it to her next month.  
V04, B00 & YG01

I stamped three beverages from "Raise a Glass" by Clearly Besotted, then colored with Copic markers.  I really like the color combination of V04, B00 and YG01.    I fussy cut the images,  added a bit of gloss using Nuvo Tonic Clear Glaze and put them away to dry.  I then took an A2 card and scored two lines above and below where I wanted to attach the cut-outs.  I thought this would frame my focal point.  Next, I heat embossed a sentiment and adhered all 4 pieces with 3D foam squares.  Last, I stamped Happy Birthday inside the card.

I should do this more often, but I took a picture of the supplies I used

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
