New Year = Cocktails?

Happy New Year! It's the first Tuesday of 2022, which means that it's my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. I've made a New Year's card with the wonderful cocktail stamp and a sentiment from the Nicci Battilana Eclectica ENB06 Rubber Cling Mounted Stamp Set by PaperArtsy on a background created with the Nicci Battilana Stencil PS291 by PaperArtsy and SundanceLime Punch, and Pine Elements Inks by Lavinia Stamps.

Here's the card.
