rustic elegance...TSTR #136

When I saw Rebecca's challenge for us at The Shabby Tea Room I couldn't wait to get crafty. Just look at that gorgeous inspiration pic! Our challenge recipe this week is a yummy combo of:

                                            * COLOURS FROM THE PHOTO
                                            * A 'RUSTIC' ELEMENT ( i.e.WOOD or BURLAP)
                                            * AN ELEGANT ELEMENT

The possibilities are endless... Such an inspiring photo, paired with beautiful Papers from Janet (Shabby Chic Paper) Our winner this week will win a $50 prize pack from Frost It Pink and our Terrific top Three will win 3(1st place) 2(second place) or 1(third place) collages from Janet's Digital Paper Shop(etsy)

I used some Tim Holtz goodies here: woodgrain embossing folder and chandelier stamp.I ran my white ink over the raised bits of the embossing to give it a vintage vibe.. Some glitzy gems (part of my elegant element) and a wooden button for my 'rustic' element.

Janet's papers pair perfectly with my embossed background.. and I got to use my new Paper Sweeties stamp from the "So Sweet of You" set!
