Stitched wine glasses

This is my second post of the day,  I made this card just now and wanted to post it right away! I was planning a celebrate card in my head with stitching, and I kept thinking of fireworks, we are living in Macau for quite a few years, and I relate to celebrations with fireworks, I was going to make one with fireworks, but when I sat down to execute this is what I have made. Completely different from what was in my head. I cannot believe myself, this is what I do with food also, I think of making something and I go in kitchen and I change my mind in the last minute and make something else...the good thing here is that I am not forgetful, I just change my mind in the very last minute. It was taking me forever to come up with a stitching design for firework, so made a switch!
I drew wine glasses and sparkles, and stitched those. used grey thread for the glasses, a maroon for the wine, and maroon and yellow for the sparkles, used very few colors on my card. Added a sentiment to finish off. Used foam adhesive on the front panel to give it a lift.
