Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: Set the Table

Dear Reader,

I am back after the Oscars to squeeze in an entry for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: Set the Table.

And here is my take on the Trigger:

I was inspired by the colors, shapes of the plates, the linen and silverware.  I chose an older patterned paper from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry collection which has a linen design to cut a couple of circles from with a circle of gold sandwiched in between.  The other patterned paper is a pale grey by Basic Grey from their Basics collection with a distress that reminds me of the tarnished silverware.  I stamped a sentiment onto a strip of vellum which reminds me of the shape of a napkin using Mama Elephant's Midnight Letters (can't get enough of them since I finally inked them up this week) in a brown ink I stamped off once before stamping upon the vellum and gold glitter Thickers.  The sentiment is part of a quote from the great movie "Auntie Mame" (the rest of the sentiment is: "...and most poor suckers are starving to death").  On the main circle I stamped utensils with soft stone which peeks through the vellum very subtly.  I attached the vellum to the card by hand sewing with gold thread.  With enough practice I may become a mediocre sewer.  One can dream.

I am off to get some sleep.  Have a marvelous Monday!

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit,
