It took me *forever* to finally decide what I wanted to do with this! The crackle paint bg paper is from the "Tuscany" scrap pad (provo craft). The red gingham is dyed with creamy caramel to blend better with the color scheme. Do you think the ribbon is too much?

NO! The ribbon is NOT too much, although I agree, it needed to be dyed. I must say, I love your use of stipple stencils with this set. I am so CASEing that idea! It looks like french wall paper. I way love it!!! And can I also say, I hope that SU brings back the crackle background stamp in the new catty. I miss it so!
Beautiful. As for the ribbon... I think it adds that final touch that pulls the entire card together... without it, it would be a good card, with it is a GREAT card. I am not familiar with this rooster stamp, is it from an old set? I love it.
answered my own question.. I just found the rooster in the new catalogue preview section which I did not realize there were more entries there. this is a MUST HAVE set! It is hard to find stamps in this style which I love, I am not into "cutesy" so much.. does anyone know what hostess level this set is on?
thanks for some insight, I can hardly wait to get my hands on this!

Trudee, The ribbon is PERFECTO! I'm the lucky one to have this card in her "non country" kitchen that's a more old world look! The colors just blend so perfectly and the design is "inspired" !! I LOVE IT!!!

YOu must have had a dream fortelling the arrival of the new Weathered background stamp!
Wonderful card once again. I knew when I first saw the Provencal set that I had tohave it. Now after seeing gorgeous samples like this, I know why!
