Happy Hour for Dynamic Duos #10

Hey there! Who is ready for another fun color challenge at Dynamic Duos? As it is the first week of the month, we are going with a "Bold and Sassy" color combo of Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. Don't you love these colors together? I sure do! Old Olive has always been a favorite of mine. :) 
I decided to ink up a new stamp set called Happy Hour for this one. When I saw the sketch from Mojo Monday, I was immediately inspired to play along. Hooray for some crafting that AND time have been in short supply recently. 
Once I got to stamping, I didn't really give much thought to that little accent on the left hand side of the sketch, until I got the card put together. None of the sentiments in that stamp set would fit on a 1'" circle, or so I thought. I simply colored in part of one of the sentiments with a marker and just stamped the word "cheers". Whew! Crisis averted! 

Also, for the record, I did not intend to stamp the three drinks in a straight line...for couple of reasons. Even with the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, I still struggle to stamp in a straight line, so why fight it. Haha, I'm a "stamp-a-ma-mess" sometimes, I tell ya! I also wanted the middle drink to look like it was a bit more focal, as it was dressed up with that sparkly lime. This is such a fun set, it was one of the first on my list to order from the new SU catalog. 
Here's a little photo of the dressed-up inside of the card, just for fun:
