Stampin' Queens

Wow, it's already Wednesday!  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.   Where has this year gone?  Today, is the start of a new week for the Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge, and here is their sketch.

Ok, so if you know me, you know that I have an infinity to anything french, vintage/shabby chic, or pink.  So, I don't think that it comes as a surprise as to the pattern paper from Stampin' Up! that I have used:  Beau Chateau.  The only stamping I did was for that little sentiment tag.  And yes, I used the tiny tags stamp set.  Here is my creation:

I'm not positive, but don't you think that the rooster is the french version of the American pineapple.  Its a symbol of hospitality.  Anyways, with the holidays right around the corner (literally) I thought it was fitting.  I didn't vary the sketch in any way.  It's pretty straight forward.  But, now the more I look at my card, the more I want to add one of those tiny, round, metal trim tags below my bow.  And maybe a faux half pearl swirl of some sort.  No, I didn't sponge a thing.  Shocking.  But, I have to admit, I kinda like it! with the clean crisp corners and edges.  Anyways, please play along!
