Viva Las VegaStamps August's Inspiration Board Challenge

Yay, My 1st Monthly challenge submission for Viva Las VegaStamps. They have just brought back the monthly challenges (although I didn't know about them in the past) I am super excited to participate in them now! 
This months inspiration board was this-----> 

I absolutely love the colors and everything about it! 
For my inspiration, I drew from the colors, the roses, the crown, the stitching, and the text. 

I knew instantly the 2 stamps i wanted to use: 

Here you go here's where i was inspired to go with my tag:

For my tag i started with a background piece of paper from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle 6x6 collection, and added it to a 6 1/4 x 3 1/8" #8 Manila Shipping Tag. This started be off with the color scheme and the background text. I added a doily, then stitched around the tag using white thread to keep the romantic shabby feel I was going for. 
Next I stamped the Crown on a separate piece of card stock and fussy cut it out. I then adhered it with a pop-dot for added depth. (This crown stamp is so detailed it almost looks 3D on its own! Love IT!)
The Journaling card is a digital collage piece made by me, which i added to start bringing the rose part of the inspiration in. From there Everything just fell into place. I added the lace boarder, stamped the "Treat me exactly as you would the Queen", added the Tim Holtz fragment Doll, wings, number plate, and grunge board hinges which I painted with white picket fence crackle. 
I also used both stamps to hand stamp the ribbon and seam binding to match. 

Thank you for stopping in, and I hope you all enjoy my take on the Challenge
Happy Crafting everyone!
