Card fit for a Queen

I started this card yesterday and finished it up today. My friend is wanting some samples of how crafters can use the Spellbinder Nesties together to hang in the store she works in and my imagination has gone into overdrive, lol.
I love these cards I found on this blog. I like the layouts and some of designs just speak to me, lol. I do like to change things around to make them my own, and so this is what I came up with.
I used Spellbinders labels Five and created a frame by cutting out two at a time. I stamped the Waltzingmouse labels onto the cut out and I have to say, of all the labels out there, I really do like these quite a bit. They are easy to use and add so much to the cards. The sentiment is from PTI's out on a limb stamp set. The corners are from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis dies. I cut the middle section out and then cut that in half, trimmed up some rough edges and voila. I also used the Fleur De Lis small shape for the leaves. I used heartfelt creations posies stamps and cut them out. I do have the dies to cut them out but for some reason, they are difficult to work with and line up with the images. I inked up the flowers and edges with Tim Holtz inks: Spun sugar, dried marigold, peeled paint, old paper, tea dye. I also used SU's basic gray. And speaking of basic grey, the dsp is Cappella. I also used SU's very vanilla and basic grey papers along with some pearls. Hope you like it and it inspires you to make something with your own spellbinders. I know mine have not been used too much, but I am trying to remedy that, lol.
This is also for Anne Ryan's QFTD challenge over at splitcoast stampers.
