Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #17 - Happy Anniversary

Hi all,

This week Keesh had an Inspiration challenge - here is the photo:

I thought of going out for dinner, and decided to make an anniversary card. I decided to use the elements in the photo like a sketch:

For the branch I have used the flourish from Baroque Motifs in Creamy Caramel ink. Some Bella Bleu DSP panels represent the table etc, with a scored line across the top for texture and definition. The kraft ribbon and silver brads are inspired by the napkin and silverware. I was going for a simple elegant look, and decided to use Very Vanilla to bring out the warmth as well.
The greeting on the DSP is from Cheer & Wishes.

The weather has been so miserable and gloomy that I struggled with the photo even more than usual! This one was taken flat, the best I could do - the card fold is at the top.


Stamps: Baroque Motifs (first time I've used it, lol!), Cheer & Wishes

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Bella Bleu DSP

Ink: Creamy Caramel

Accessories: Kraft taffeta ribbon, filagree brad, silver brads, rhinestone brad, paper piercer, mat pack.

Thanks Keesh for a very challenging challenge! :)
