Special Blend

The team at Less is More are looking for a shaped card this week - not square or rectangle!! 
 
Now I know why they call them challenges!!  A shaped card! hmmm ... I do have one set of framelits but as someone had already used that set I had to really put my thinking cap on. 
 
I decided to make a champagne bottle, totally forgetting about the one layer part of the deal, so to overcome that I decided to print my "greeting" direct to the cardstock.  I then stamped the square for the label and the little vine and then masked those sections off before sponging the pink champagne.  I used a SU gold marked to simulate the gold foil and the silver marker to make the wire lines.


 
The ingredients were mostly SU: Whisper White card;
Forever with you stamp set;
Pink Pirouette ink;
Raspberry Ripple and Gold and Silver markers.
The square stamp is an unknown one that I have had for years
and never previously used.
 
I do hope that the computer generated "greeting" has not breached any of the rules of the challenge.
I did have fun with this one.

Computer greetings are absolutely fine Mary... what a clever card you made!
I'm quite partial to pink champagne myself!
Thanks so much

What a great idea. I normally do square square or square cards so I am truly inspired by this shape. hugs x
