Double D - It's On the Menu

Dear Ones~

HAPPY 3rd ANNIVERSARY to US. It's Double D's 3rd anniversary, so we are celebrating with WHAT'S ON THE MENU!!! And stay tuned until the end of this post, because I have a fantastic GIVEAWAY for one lucky player.

Just look at this Mood Board provided for our inspiration. We are to use anything found on a menu.

Here's my card:
 I just LOVE black and gold together, so classy and elegant.  I also love a good martini, something you would find on a menu. This stamp is from Impression Obsession, I think it's so cute that they used cupcakes instead of olives, and a candle instead of a stir. Lots of blitz and glamour here, reminds me of the night clubs of the Roaring 20s.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx Card Stock
DCWV Black Kraft & Gold Patterned Paper
Impression Obsession Birthday Cakes Stamp
Paper Studio Words Stamp
Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder
Gold Thread & Ribbon
Gold Gems
