Beau Chateau with Side Notes CCMC196

One of the beautiful product suites in the catalog is the classic and vintage Beau Chateau!  Such beautiful papers and accessories, oh my!!   Create with Connie and Mary have a lovely sketch this week CCMC196 and I used it for this card made with products from this suite.

The color scheme is strictly from the Beau Chateau Designer Paper; the card base is Pink Pirouette overlaid with two different patterns from the designer paper package.

 Where the two pieces of Designer Paper came together I added Sticky Strip then slightly gathered the Victorian Crochet Ribbon onto it.  Over that I added some of the gorgeous Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon and it blended perfectly with the color scheme.  Across the stitching on the pleated ribbon, I added the strip of Basic Pearls for an elegant touch!
The package of Beau Chateau Side Notes are pre-printed and pre-cut so all one has to do is embellish, if desired, and adhere it to your design!  Simple, simple!  I love this particular one; I added touches of Marina Mist to coordinate with the paper, then I added Basic Pearls on the bee and below the words to dress it up a bit.

I sponged the edge of the Side Note with Soft Suede before I adhered it with Dimensionals.

Gee, all these frills and pearls I've used today make me feel like a little girl playing dress-up!  It's been fun and so easy because these Beau Chateau Side Notes are already ready to go and feature great designs!!

Thanks for coming by!  Hope to see you again soon
