anniversary a la ... wine

Had a request for an anniversary card. So I made one , a couple, many. And you get to see them all. Tomorrow's is the last :)

Meet my card. My girlfriend who requested the anniversary cards actually suggested a card with "wine" as a theme. But she didn't end up taking this one :(

That's OK. I'm not sure why, but I'm not so keen on it either.

I heat embossed Stampendous Wine Labels gold and then watercolored about three layers over it with Gansai Tambi blues and a touch of purple. Not really happy with the watercoloring. Hm. I was envisioning elegant, regal blue, paired with lovely gold embossing. I got this :) Your thoughts?

Cut my panel with CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles.  Added a Hero Arts Best Wishes sentiment on vellum.

I'm joining the fun at:
