Never too old for a cocktail!

I made this card recently for a friend I met online playing Scrabble.  Someone who started out as a stranger nearly seven or eight years ago, living round the other side of the world, is now a very good friend.  We were lucky enough to meet in the UK in 2012 and again last year when my hubby and I went to New Zealand.
As the card had a long way to travel, I made a card which folded flat for posting and just embossed the panels to add detail, rather than add bulky embellishments.  The card blank was made with Presscut step card die.  The image is a pre-coloured digi stamp from Pink Gems Designs, 'Cocktail Molly'.  I used a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder with deep red cardstock to match the colour in the image.

I am joining in the following challenges:
