Touch of France

This is such a different style for me, but I like to have a go at different things. This is for a friend of mine who has just come back from Paris. Thought she might like a little bit of Paris for her birthday, hope she likes it.  I made this with images from Free Vintage Digi Stamps they have such lovely French images.  Some of the papers where Kaisercraft.  I blended a lot with Tim Holtz old paper ink and distressed edges.  I even did a bit of paper tearing!!  Background stamp is the En Francais one from Stampin'up.  I  bought the little camera stamp from a market I went to on holidays.  Its such a good little stamp, wish now I had bought a few more of his stamps.  Its just peeking out under the bow and pin.  
So here is my card......



I am going to enter this in the following challenges
Simon says stamp and show "what do you say?" Sentiment challenge.
Friday mash up
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with a "Stick Pin on it."
  2. Or Make a "Vintage" project.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Vintage project with a Stick Pin on it."
Have a great day
Sandy :)
