Joie de Vivre

Greetings!  It's a new month and that means Make My Monday has a new theme of French and a whole month of challenges around this theme.  This week, the specific theme is Paris.  As France is the only country I have had the privilege of visiting, so far, I was really, really excited to have a month of challenges that are all things French.  For my card, I chose to work with one of my absolute favorites plates called Paris Exposition by Artistic Outpost.  The hot air balloons were water colored with Distress Markers.  Fleur de Lis ribbon and black Liquid Pearls were selected for a simple, masculine accent.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Yvonne

C'est magnifique Yvonne!! Love all the French inspired elements you've included - your stamp plate is wonderful. Your card has a steampunk feel to it and I love it!
