If anyone out there is fluent in Latin, I want to apologize right now. Very roughly translating- I came, I saw, I drank wine. I am going to wine country next week and that provided the inspiration for this card.
The main panel is wc paper, embossed with Dark Brown, watercolored in with Pomegrante, Celery and Wasabi. I embossed and colored it twice, cutting out a few leaves and the bunch of grapes. The second layer is on dimensionals, guess that's paper tole technique. Sponged Creamy Caramel around the edge to age the paper and mounted the panel on Celery and Wasabi. Wrapped some fiber that reminds me of the tendrils on the grapevine. I hand-wrote the words in Cocoa marker. The BG is French Script stamped in Caramel, with distressed edge, also sponged in Caramel. The last panel is PP DP on a Pomegranate base.
I had a couple of false starts on this but love the final product. Thanks for looking and commenting.

This is lovely. I think your coloring is fabulous. I hope you do get to drink some awesome wine. Nothing like it. Love the grapevine tendrils. Really nice visual effect. This is a great card. Thanks for sharing and have fun...
