Another wonderful sketch by Amber for this week's Verve Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration picture basically made my card for me :D First thing that came to my mind when I saw the plate was: "Darn, I don't have that Nestie shape"....yet.... LOL! So I stuck to the oval as per the sketch.
As luck would have it, I had some card stock that was a perfect match for the plate colour. I then embossed the flower image in white on Kraft as per the napkin. Then I got stuck because I needed another colour to work with and didn't have any DPs with these colours in it. Back to the picture I went. Since there was silverware in the picture, I figured gray was a good match. I crimped the two gray panels for some dimension and added the brads and some ribbon. The ribbon is actually a perfect match to the card stock but the camera didn't want to show it that way - ugh! A little something was still needed so I added a little border along the bottom and a tag to pull in a bit more of the kraft colour and fill in that side of the card.
Can't wait to go down town Vancouver this weekend to join the Olympic festivities - free ones that is LOL! We have clear blue skies and sunshine for a few days to come so you will be able to see Vancouver at its finest :D
Have a fabulous weekend!
