Elegant Quote (IC108)

This cocktail dress was the inspiration piece for this week's Inspiration Challenge. Elegant Eggplant is a very deep purple and always shows up almost black in photos. That's what color the darker panel is. The base card is Very Vanilla with the Ticket Corner punched Eggplant piece which is embossed with gold embossing powder using the flourish from "Doodle This". The quote Proust says, "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy - they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." It's from "Sidekick Sayings" and is embossed in gold on Vanilla. I matted that piece on Basic Black and almost used a gold gel pen around the edges, but I decided it would be too much gold. I popped up the main panel on dimensionals and added gold metallic ribbon to finish it off.
