Joie de Vivre!


Happy Saturday! A triple play for you today...a 3 challenge card! This little French number is for Sketch Challenge 214, Limited Supply (LS)224, Internationa Flair (use another language on your card, and Ways to Use It (WT) 223 to use text on the front of your card.
I have just this stamp and the French Script background so my choices were simple. I found this Inkadinkadoo stamp in the $1 clearance bin at Michael's awhile ago. The Making Memories Sabrina paper pack has that antiquey French feel so I immediately knew I wanted to use it.
You can find the dimensions for each panel here on Roxie's excellent post. I stamped the image with Versafine Black, then heat embossed with clear EP. Colored with marker. I distressed all the DP edges with scissors and sponged them in black. The pearls are stick on's from Michael's. I cut the image panel with the Spellbinders Label die and mounted it on a slightly larger square that I corner rounded. The next size label dies were too big.
I will be MIA for a few days...the new washer/dryer are coming today and laundry hasn't been done here for 3 weeks!!! The tile floor is finished and my dear sweet hubby is cutting the baseboards this a.m. I am chief painter person.
We are also going blackberry and peach pickin'!!! My most favorite time of year. Needless to say, I will be making jam and freezing peaches for a few days. Be sure to check back in as I'm sure I'll make some yummy creations to share the goodies.
Thanks for stopping by...your comments are precious and appreciated!
Blessings!
Pin It!
