Thought for the day -

Good Evening All and Happy New Year!!!  It has been ages since I've posted a thing but I can assure you I have not been idle.  I made lots of crafts, mostly for Christmas, but in my perpetual state of hurry, hurry, hurry I never took the time to take a picture of any of them :(

I am currently working on a 2nd blog- what was I thinking, when I can't keep up with my current blog, haha.  The new blog will coincide with my new etsy shop.  Enough about that- on to todays card.  My card is for 2 challenges.  The sketch has been provided by MOJO Monday and the inspiration is from this weeks Etsy Inspired Challenge.

This week the etsy store being featured is La Pomme.  They offer some very cool vintage articles with a French flair.  My card was inspired by several items-



The crocheted tablecloth is gorgeous!
Here is my take on both Mojo Monday's sketch and my inspiration pieces.
































All of the dp used is from Paris Nights by gcd Studios.  I just love all the papers in this pad. So very vintage and French.  My lace ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  My sentiment stamps are from Waltzing Mouse stamps and my pocket watch stamp is a digital from Lindseys Stamp Stuff.  It's a little difficult to see in the picture but the rosette was made from dp sheet music, also from the Paris Nights pad.
I seldom take pictures of the inside of my cards but the inside sentiment reads: Together, Always.

So there you have it, my take on vintage french.
