I thought I would post this tonight as I am out all day tomorrow with my family and with the extended family from Kent. We are all off to Chessington World of Adventures and we think there will be around 24 of us with all the big and little children!!!! I think we will be very tired tomorrow night.
I have really gone to town on this one and it grew and grew. I downloaded some images to use and chose this as the central one, behind it is a postcard which has merci in the text but it got covered by the leaves. I have stamped several TH French theme stamps on the backing paper which was also a download and then distressed. There is texture on the card on both the yellow mount (I used a cuttlebug embossing folder of musical notes) and the paper that I sewed the lace to is also embossed. I made 2 of the flowers myself and embellished the butterfly. The backing paper and the flowers I made have been misted using glimmer mists. Here is the merci saying and the flower embellishment.
I had great fun playing around with this one, but I have to say it isn't one of my favourites now it is finished. Never mind. We learn in lots of ways and I am happy to experiment.
