cocktails and stripes

I've combined the stripe challenge at one layer wednesday with the cocktail challenge at less is more to make this really simple card.

To make the stripes, I randomly snipped a piece of copy paper with scissors, then cut them at irregular heights and angles. I sprayed the back with stick and spray, and then brayer the ink over the top.
I had previously stamped and mask the glass stamp from The Frantic Stamper's own range of stamps.

I stamped the word celebrate, lightly coloured the glass with pink pencil and applied glossy accents.
