Keep Calm and Carry On, new stamps at Chocolate Baroque

Hi there folks, my card share today features some of the  gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque:  Artistic Expressions  which i've combined with some of the new Crafty Individuals stamps. 

The backing paper is from the neutrals collection from Decadent Brocade cd, overstamped with the swirl from Artistic Expressions and embossed with beige embossing powder. The Crafty individuals Union Jack and the sentiment are stamped on printable canvas coloured with antique linen distress stain.  I was really pleased to find a use for this as I bought it ages ago and my printer just spits it out lol. I've used the wings and crown from the heart stamp on Artistic expressions,stamping the wings on vellum and the crown on beige and black card for a bit of contrast. 

I've matted the sentiment on Shapeabilities Fancy Tags 2 and attached it with some seam binding ribbon. I've added lots of faux pearls and a few gems to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge: die cut or punches
Simon Says Stamp and Show: London, New York or Paris
Sentimental Sunday's Lets get sentimental
Truly Madly Crafty: ribbon and bling

  3. The contrasting positive & negative of your two crowns is brilliant & I love your use of that beige embossing powder - I must admit that is a lack in my collection! The ribbon tag is a lovely embellishment.
