This one was made with a set of Creative Impressions stamps and some cream card, no patterned paper, I've stamped the lot!  It's for my sister to give our wine loving Dad for Father's Day, he likes quite a busy style of card and all things vintage, so I thought this Chateau Chic card would be perfect for him.
 I stamped and heat embossed the topper with gold detail powder, then used some Stampendous Aged Gold embossing enamel around the edges for a shabby look, it's been used on the Distress Inked corner element too.  The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp, I added colour with Distress Markers and diffused with water.
I used Distress Ink pads and Distress Markers to create the backing papers, colouring directly onto the stamp with the pens, then spraying with water for the grapes and the wine glasses.  I layered image with text, added a little doodling with the fine nib of the markers and finished by stamping a wine bottle, cutting it out, and raising it up with glue gel.
