CREATE with the Stampin' Queens

Happy Wednesday to you!  The Stampin' Queens have another very user-friendly sketch!  So, head on over to the Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge blog, to see what that super creative design team have created!  Just remember to use your Stampin' Up! paper crafting supplies!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

Have I said how much I'm loving this Beau Chateau DSP?  Well, I'm a super big fan!  This paper has beautiful floral images, and fun different french farm patterns, that work super well together.  I believe this pattern paper has that vintage feel that I am soo loving right now.  

I used the Established Elegance stamp set and Beau Chateau DSP during last weeks Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.  I have decided to use the same package of DSP and stamp set, for this week's challenge., too  I added a few different items tho, like Marina Mist cardstock, vintage hardware, and the Creative Elements stamp set.  I used the other crochet trim, and a different crumb cake ribbon.  
To help my card have that vintage feel, I scrunched a small section of the paper and gave my card some sponging on the edges.  I also added a few squirts of Lob Cabin and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.
I did wad up the seam binding before I adhered it to the card.  I thought that if the seam binding was smooth, it would look 'new' and not 'worn'.   It's pretty simple, spray the seam binding with some water and roll between your palms.  I also tied on a double bow.  I thought it gave the card some pizzazz.  The two faux half-pearls were 'colored' with smooch.
I hope that you get a chance to play along with us Stampin' Queens!

That's a beauty, Sharon! Love how you've mixed the soft and solid tones and these colors are my all-time faves. Have a great day!
