Darn, Don't Have That Nestie Shape....Yet...

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!
