Set the Table

I was recently reading a fashion trend emerging again is gold. I distinctly remember when it was last in fashion as I've always been partial to silver and I was disappointed I couldn't find silver or platinum edged fine china at the time I was married. A year later before a holiday I decided to splurge and add to my collection so I could serve holiday meals on it. What do you know? They still had the pattern but not in gold, only platinum  I had just missed the cut off and now 14 years later my china is back on trend.


The Moxie Fab Trigger and all it's lovely warm cream tones reminded me of my china so I made this card using gold embossing powder on vanilla cardstock. To replicate the linen I used some soft linen thread looped behind the image on the tag. This week's CAS(E) this sketch was inspiring as well and I used that to create the layout, flipping it to allow the sentiment placement just where I wanted it.


Thanks for the visit and I hope you play along too!
