When the Champagne Is Gone.....

The champagne was very good New Year's Eve and my DH  saved the carton as  he just knew that I'd find some way to use it on a card.  And I did not disappoint him. I cut a section of the box and used below for this card featuring a black silhouette. I simply stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with a Black EP on the gold box.  Colored some buttons with paint, added some brads and braid and assembled all on a black CS following the sketch below.  The design in the box was great for this scene.
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge: Week 89 suggested by Patty-" Use brads or eyelets".  Also used Stamps from Mark's Finest Papers.

Will add sentiment or not when I use the card.
