Serendipity Stamps - May Blog Hop!

The Challenge theme for May continues to be Die Cuts.  
For the HOP the Design Team
has the added challenge of RELAX/ENJOY.

I decided to do a cocktail card for ENJOYING and RELAXING! 
The die cut balloons 
are from the Party Balloons Reverse Die.  

For a little added something I put "salt" on my margarita!
Queen and Company makes "Sugar" in a bunch of different colors
so I added white to my drink because it looked like salt.

Inside I added a few balloons and matching paper.
Finished size is an A-2.

The 50% off stamp of the month is the Lemonade Pitcher 

Leave comments on each DT Members Blog and the prize is a $20 gift certificate to one commenter randomly selected  You can leave comments through May 22.  The winner will be announced on Mary's blog on May 23.

Love that margarita - might have to go get one tonite! Also, I hate leaving the inside of a card blank, yours is great! Thank you for the ideas!
