Bonjour, Mon Amie!

Hello Everyone! It's finally Spring Break here in AZ and I am looking forward to it. I'm hoping to squeeze in plenty of card making ;)

My first card today is from a Shabby Chic workshop I did the other night. Luckily, I only had a few girls there, because these cards definitely take a little longer to put together than your every day card. This is not my normal style, but I am lucky to be able to gather my inspiration from some very talented ladies.

This design is inspired by Kimberly Van Diepen's Valentine's Box seen here. If you have not been to her website, you must hop over. She is amazing!

The focal point of this card is the paper flower. It is made using (2) 12" strips of DSP (1-1" piece and 1-1 1/2" piece.) They are ruffled around a 1 3/8" circle that is covered with Sticky Strip. I added a french flair to my card by pulling out my retired Carte Postale stamp set. Love it! I hadn't used it in some time.

Thanks for stopping by!
