Time Out #239

There's a photo challenge at Time Out

Here's a closer look.

 I took bits and pieces of the photo to make my card. 

See the copper glasses?  That inspired my copper embossed frame.  To pay homage to the crystal glasses I embossed a piece of acetate and layered it over the green that is in the vase.  Here's a close up.

The flowers are Cistus from Altenew in shades of gray and white with pink and yellow centers. 

Picket Fence is sponsoring this challenge and the winner will receive a $25 store credit.  What part or parts of the photo inspire you?  Come see what the Design Team and our guest designer Joyce have made. I hope you'll show us how you are inspired by entering a card in the gallery.
