SCRSC 65 and Card Patterns Sketch 137

Hello, hello! And welcome to another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge.

It's SCRSC 65 and it's a photo inspiration:

The first thing that came to mind were the colors. They're sort of monotonous, except for the dark gold/brown/amber. And I decided not to go for the Fall theme as my cards lately have been depicting a lot of Autumn goodness already.

It was a bit of a challenge to do similar colors but have the papers stand out at the same time. So I made a lot of borders. I used Cocktail Emily because of the glass element. The lemon signifies the food entity in the pic, and the sentiment (night) reflects the candlelight.


Doesn't Emily look like she's ready to have some fun? The paper behind her was misted and the hidden design made it look like a dance floor, don't ya think? (more info on technique on this post). And the handwriting on the papers? Well, it's poetic and romantic because you never know who you're gonna meet when you're out with the girls, am I right?? :)

Just remind me to please never mix silver and brown again on a dress....eeeeeks!! LOL!

SCRS is also the current sponsor at Card Patterns, and I wanted to participate. It's my first time, but it won't be my last. They have really great sketches!
