Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #94-French Country Greetings

Another great sketch this week for Waltzingmouse Stamps weekly Sketch Challenge #94.  This weeks sketch is by Karin Akesdotter.  Here's the sketch:
I have been loving the recently released Waltzingmouse stamps French Country set and used it again this week. 

The background stamp is a pattern that can be used for so many occasions and this time it is stamped in black on white cardstock with lots of edge distressing.  I also added a layer of the Waltzingmouse Chickenwire border too.  Doesn't it go nicely with the French Country background?  I used a very delicate Papertrey Ink Filagree Lace border diecut to add a frilly touch to this card.  The tag and sentiment is from Waltzingmouse stamps Very Vintage Labels #25 and I just added a touch of red copic coloring to the flower image from French Country.  I added a wrinkled ribbon bow and a pretty sparkly button for some bling.  Now for a confession, all of these stamped images came from my sweet friend Renee Lynch of It's a Patchwork Life.  Renee sent these to me as a part of a card-making kit and luckily, she sent so much I have had tons to play with after our original cards were completed.  I think I still have enough to squeeze out at least two more cards and by then, the stamp set should be arriving at my own door.

100% wms. I'd never have thought to add the chicken wire but, yes, it does work nicely. I can never get my mind around so many elements when making my own cards but examples like this make me want to keep trying.

This is amazing and I love all of your stamping! Super colors and I love that simply treated flower in the center - such pop! Great job!
