Lilac wine with the Rainbow Lady

Time for a new challenge over at Rainbow Lady's challenge blog and this week our topic is 'Lilac Wine'. As usual we have a fab sponsor and this week our lucky winner will receive a  prize from Joanna Sheen

Here's my DT card for this week, I had to get my thinking cap on as I wasn't sure where to start with this weeks theme but then I found this beautiful digistamp from Squigglefly which I thought would be perfect

The image is coloured with promarkers and the glass is triple embossed with clear EP. I distressed the edges with lots of distress ink in shades of green
The bp is from Artylicious 'Essence of Nature' cd printed in green on one side of the paper and lilac on the other. I lightly drew around the edges of the image on the reverse of the bp and then cut an 'x' over the image shape, I stamped and embossed a swirly corner from Chocoloate Baroque in the corners and used a gold krylon pen along the edges. I rolled each side of the 'x' back and stuck the corners down with a little glue.
I embossed a large swirly corner on the corners of the bp and then layered it up over the image.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cards for Men: Embossing
Creatalicious: two tone
Catch the bug: Anything goes
Die Cut Dreams: Use a food themed digi
I did it creations: anything goes
