Stampsmith Challenge # 19 - Teal and Yellow

This is my second time entering a card into a Stampsmith Challenge! For Challenge # 19, we are permitted to use other than Stampsmith images, but we must include yellow and teal somewhere on our card. I chose various background papers in teal and yellow hues and cut them into 1.5 inch squares to cover the front of my card. For my main image, I shaded glossy paper with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen. I then stamped "Love Under the Stars" by Stampsmith on the glossy paper with Black Memento ink. I added tulle netting over the image to soften the image and secured the image to the card front with Kraft photo corners. I stamped several phrased in French from the Paris plate by Stampsmith and adhered them to several of the card squares. To complete my card I added vintage buttons, heart stickers by Martha Stewart, seam binding and a gauze flower by Tim Holtz. (Thanks to Debbie Reid for sharing the source of these really cool gauze flowers.)
