This Too Shall Pass

It is my friend's birthday this weekend and we are getting together to celebrate. We are both teachers, and unfortunately, right now in BC it is not a happy time for our career. When thinking of a sentiment to go with her card, I came across this one: This Too Shall Pass, But While We're Waiting, Let's Go Have A Cocktail. Although I wouldn't typically use this saying for a birthday card, it seems to fit perfectly with the times. To brighten up the card, I used the fun colours at Color Throwdown and the lovely simple sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch. I am also linking up to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of using clear stamps - and I even purchased both of these eye-catching sets from the Simon Says Stamp store!
stamp sets - I Like You (Kelly Purkey), Free Spirits (Paper Smooches);
Cuttlebug folders & dies - Woodgrain (SU), Free Spirits (Paper Smooches);
ink - Pixie, Canary, Sunset (CTMH); Silver Shimmer Tape (CTMH).
