Paris in Springtime

Greetings! Today I have a card to share with you that I made recently. My card features images from the Paris Exposition plate by Artistic Outpost, which is one of my all time favorites. I confess, I love all things French! It is probably because I had the privilege as a child of having French Class from 4th through 12th grade. I loved every moment of it! The card base was wrapped with oyster scalloped lace and layered with a pink doily and brown Cabinet Card Die Cut, which was stamped with several images in white Versafine ink. Additional images were stamped in Sepia Versafine ink on watercolor paper and adhered to the Cabinet Card. To give that springtime feeling, I painted portions of the woman, and the lace along the bottom with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Embellishments include some very special buttons, appliques and a seam binding bow. This card is also for the Sunday Share over at Frilly and Funkie. Hoping springtime is bring rebirth to you and your family. Best wishes, Yvonne

So fabulous.
I cannot speak French, only managed (so far) to visit Paris once but I cannot help but be enthralled by this city.
Adore your card.

Wow, I think this is stunning Yvonne. I love the cabinet die cut, and the colours just look so beautiful together. I've never been to France but would love to visit someday - there's something very intriguing about Paris.
