Make A Card Monday!

Hello everyone and happy Monday!
This last week completely escaped me as I worked on getting things together for my oldest daughters birthday party this coming Saturday. 
She wants a Maleficent party which I'm having a blast creating things for. 
While I was shopping at Michael's for spooky inspiration I just couldn't stay out of the stamp isle and I happened to stumble upon these stamp sets from Art Impressions.

That's right! Art Impressions is now in Michael's stores! 
How awesome is that? I can see my collection growing by the second!
I picked up the beach babes set (pictured in the middle) I wanted to grab that set with the airplane but it was already sold out, so I'll be searching for that every trip.
So taking a little break from the Maleficent projects I created this little card.

 The girlfriend stamps kill me! I just adore them. 
I kept it very clean and simple. Stamped it onto SSS white cardstock 
and colored directly on the card base. 
SSS cardstock is the best I've found so far that wont the copics wont bleed through to the inside of the card.

 I tried to not be very fussy about my coloring and stick to two colors and not blend as much like the art impression sets look. 
I also added glossy accents to the sunglasses as well as the drink glasses.

 These little ladies will be perfect to enter into this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge being that this weeks theme is "You Gotta Have Friends"

Using Kraft ink from MFT's new Hybrid ink collection I stamped the girlfriends again on the inside and used versafine to stamp the sentiment.
That's all for the card today.
Head on over to the SSS Wednesday challenge to participate you have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
