Wine/Grapes Love Card - MFP Simple Salutations

Created this Love card with theme of Wine/Grapes for Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations Challenge I host. Challenge runs 2/13-19. Click here for details & enter. 

Used DCWV Once Upon A Time paper that I've hoarded for quite some time & is perfect with the castle open area look. Made card with colors of purple to represent the grapes/wine and green to represent the vine. Colors are also Mardi Gras like colors. Use MFP 'No Sour Grapes' stamp set. Stamped the MFP wine bottle to be like it was on the opening ledge. Stamped the MFP sentiment. Made card to be like a gate fold card with a part on right side with MFP grapes stamped covered by the ribbon when card is closed. Inside is a Spellbinder die with MFP sentiment stamped on it.

Front of card closed:

Inside of card opened:

ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Staz On Royal Purple

light purple cardstock

ribbon: Spool O' Ribbon green (to represent vines) & purple (to represent grapes)
