Margarita Day with YNS

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's Feature Day at Your Next Stamp!!

Feature Day Theme Is....
Margarita Day


Today is National Margarita Day which focuses on appreciating the margarita, a tequila-based alcoholic cocktail.  The origins of National Margarita Day are not well documented, although accounts of the day begin to emerge in the 1990s.
A margarita is cocktail made of tequila, triple sec and either lime or lemon juice served in a cocktail glass with salt on the rim.  Like the origin of the holiday, the origin of margarita is unclear as numerous bar tenders worldwide have laid claim on the drink's creation.   Several bartenders and restaurant owners in Mexico allege to have created the drink for a female friend with a name similar to Margarita.  Given that the cocktail contains tequila, the drink may have originated somewhere in Mexico. In fact, the tequila used in margaritas is made from blue agave plants that grow in Los Altos, Mexico. This holiday is observed every year on February 22nd.

I've honestly never really heard of Margarita Day! But I'd love to celebrate with one!! LOL!  I love margaritas!!

Here is the card I created:
I used the super fun Cheers! stamp set for the yummy drink, which I colored with my Copics, as well as paper pieced the umbrella!  I used my Cameo to die-cut the 21 from my white cardstock!  My little sister turns 21 next month, so hard to believe!!  

I added the large 'Happy' from the Happy Everything stamp set in Holly Berry Red Ink!  I die cut the banner from the Cool Tags Two Patterns Die Set and stamped the 'birthday', also from the  Happy Everything stamp set in Black Olive Ink!  

I finished off my card by adding some Crystal Clear and Sparkle Gumdrops!!

What a fantastic birthday card for a 21st! Love the paper pieced umbrella - it's such a sweet detail. The shaker numbers are so party like with the stars in there and the bright red is a great choice. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber for our birthday theme challenge.
