W&W Belated 2nd Birthday Bash | Image Inspiration with Taheerah

 
Taheerah always lured me in to her Cure for the Monday Blues challenges with those [I don't know where she found them] amazing photos ... no less amazing is the one she's chosen for the Winnie & Walter 2nd B.B. Image Inspiration:

Why, yes, I'd have a sip!
 
For my card I've used:
  • The Party for the sentiment
  • In Bloom: Lola's Botanicals by Joni Andaya
  • and smudged some additional inks onto an already perfect sheet of patterned paper from Shine Bright by Kaisercraft.
  • One perfect little mirrored-silver bauble to mimic the ice bucket, and some silver thread - it is a party after all:


My 'paneling' was created simply with the use of a few rectangle dies ... the same ones that cut the panels of patterned paper.  The square represents the fabulous shade on the lamp... and I wanted a bit more of that grey cardstock to show through.

Hope you like it, Taheerah!  There is one more for this challenge coming right up!

Genius! That is what this card is Michele. I love your take on the inspiration photo. The square is the perfect representation for the lamp shade, the colorful rectangle looks like you cut a piece right out of the picture in the framed artwork. lol Love it. Hugs, Brenda
