It's FIVE o'clock Somewhere!

Did my title catch your attention? No, I have not started drinking early in the day!
The challenge over at Inkurable Stampers is FOOD.
It took me a while to think of an idea....I had plenty of time the last few days to think about it while suffering from the flu! So last night I was feeling a little better and this fun and bright creation just 'fell' into place. LOL!

Maybe I was thinking of the Stamp Cruise I am going on in March, hosted by the lovely Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door....well it did make me feel better!

This is the back of the tag

Started with a large manila tag. Covered most of the front with paper from 6x6 paper pad S.E.I called "Happy Day" Very appropriate for this tag!
If you click on the tag photo to enlarge, you may see the glitter on the paper.
The top of the front of the tag and all the back was coloured with Wild Honey Distress Stain. YUM!
I used the same paper to die cut two circle tabs for the front and back of tag.
The yummy cocktail is from a paper napkin. I cut it out and adhered to double sided jac paper (sticky paper) I did not remove the back layer of the jac paper.Adhered to tag using small foam squares under the fruit to add dimension. Some stickles added to fruit. I attached a charm to the stem of the wine glass.
The 5 and 'celebrate' from Purple Onion stamps, stamped in black on white card and cut out. Edged in Wild Honey ink. Other three words were printed from computer.
Back of tag stamped 'happy birthday' as a border in black ink.
Make a Wish,Cake Time and to:from: stamps from Purple Onion. "Party" is a word strip from Darkroom Door Sweet Treats collection.
Two small cupcakes cut from the same paper pad as on the front.
Orange ribbon to finish.
The Happy Birthday stamp is from the String Sentiments Set (Darkroom Door),which I just received this week by mail from the Craft Queen. Love it!
