Fusion Card Challenge #12 meets CAS(E) this Sketch #81

I know I say this every week, but this week...I really mean it!  You are going to love this week's challenge!  Fusion Card Challenge #12 is joining CAS(E) this Sketch #81 with a fun and inspiring sketch by Sam Simpson.   Fusion Card Challenge has provided the inspirational photo and who knows what we will see from all of our participants when they fuse them together!
Here's the sketch and photo:
I was inspired by all the beautiful gold and white...the elegance of the table setting and the cute stitching in the sketch photo.
My son and daughter in law are having their 6th wedding anniversary very soon and this year is extra special for our entire family.  They are expecting their first baby and so I am imagining those champagne classes are filled with sparkling cider for Katie...champagne for Matt and a great big toast to many more happy years together.
I used Papertrey Ink's Propose a Toast stamps and a Cheery Lynn Mandy Doily below the banner.  The stitching along the top was not the easiest to do.  I used metallic gold twine and does it ever shred!  I ended up using fray check to bind two strands together so I could stitch a straight line with out fraying.  
Ready to see what the Fusion Design Team and CAS(E) this Sketch Design Team have done with the sketch and photo?

I so love this card, Cathy. I am in love with those champagne classes, and so cute that one is actually sparkling cider. So many wonderful things to celebrate with this pretty card. All the gold is so pretty, and I am now doubly impressed with your stitching, knowing how difficult it was.

Oh, this is lovely! Wonderful take on the sketch & inspiration photo!
