Au Revoir Mon Amie

It's Monday and that means a new challenge over at Make My Monday!  I am truly enjoying this month of French Vintage challenges at MMM.  For this week, the challenge is to create a project in Tricoleur of Red, White and Blue.  I began with this vintage image of the Eiffel Tower by Stampsmith and stamped it in Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  The edges were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The stamped image was matted and layered to the card front over a black doily.  The sentiment is also from Stampsmith.  A variety of airmail stickers, by Martha Stewart were distressed with more Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added to the card front.  A bit of air mail Baker's Twine, an Eiffel Tower charm from my stash, and some Liquid Pearls complete my card.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
