Parisian farewell…

I’m still in love with the vintage look…can’t get enough of seam binding ribbon, distressing, the images, the lot!  And when I needed a farewell card for a friend recently here’s what I put together for her…

I used a mixture of images from the Artistic Etchings and French Foliage stamp sets.  These two sets go soooo well together – love it!  And it was so easy to make my own background paper by stamping the images in random pattern onto very vanilla cardstock.  Job done!

Thanks for dropping by today
